2011 NATIONAL INFANT IMMUNIZATION WEEK AND TODDLER IMMUNIZATION MONTH 
April 23 - 30, 2011 is National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) and the month of May is Toddler Immunization Month (TIM). These celebrations put a spotlight on the importance of immunizations for infants and young children and are a great time to get your child caught up with any needed immunizations.
  •  Doctors recommend that infants and children get a flu vaccine every year and other immunizations at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, 15 months and 18 months of age. If your child has fallen behind, itís not too late to get up to date. Confirm today whether your child is due to receive any recommended immunizations.

  • The diseases that immunizations prevent can be serious, especially for infants and young children. In 2010, in Los Angeles County, four infants died from whooping cough, which is also known as pertussis.
