National Immunization Awareness Month

 
The month of August is recognized as "National Immunization Awareness Month" for the humans. 

Our humans need immunizations (also called vaccines or shots) to help protect them from serious diseases. To help keep our community safe, I am proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month, via this blog post.

Shots can prevent serious diseases like measles, diphtheria, and rubella. It’s important to know which shots our humans need and when to get them.
Humans should talk to their doctor or nurse to make sure that everyone in the family gets the shots they need. For more information, visit http://healthfinder.gov/NHO/AugustToolkit.aspx or http://www.vaccines.gov/more_info/features/national_immunization_awareness_month_2013.html

Our humans do so much for us, it's only right that we look after them too!

  4. Great PSA post, Stewey. All our little bipeds headed back to school today and they are all up to date on their immunizations. Best to keep them happy. Next month is Lightning's annual vet visit - lots of immunizations coming his way too:)
