August is National Immunization Awareness Month. Each year in August, NIAM provides an opportunity to highlight the value of immunization across someone’s lifespan. Activities focus on encouraging all people to protect their health by being vaccinated against infectious diseases. NIAM works to share new ways to spread the word about diseases that can come from not receiving the proper shots. If you are a teacher or even just an advocate for immunization awareness, here are some fun ways to get people in your area aware this month, all while using your at-home printer to save on signage costs.
- In order to encourage parents of young children to get the recommended immunizations for their children by the age of two, you can use your home LaserJet printer to print posters or lettering.
- Help parents make sure that older children, preteens, and teens have received all recommended vaccines by the time they go back to school, by sharing information geared towards parents of 9-18 year olds. Using a Brother Printer, you can print out a checklist of all recommended vaccines for the appropriate age and place them in your neighbors’ mailboxes or by their front doors.
- Remind college students to catch up on immunizations before they move into dormitories, by printing a fact sheet of the health hazards associated with moving into close quarters without the proper vaccinations.
- Use your home printer to print funny artwork, in efforts to remind everyone that flu season is around the corner and that they should go get their free flu shot at a local pharmacy.
