National Immunization Awareness Month

See how Windsor celebrated World Immunization Week this year.

World Immunization Week – April 24th – 30th 2022

August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) and information has been added to the Town of Windsor website to provide you with resources.  Please take a minute to review the areas that are of particular interest to you.  These areas include:  Pregnancy, The First Year, Infant and Toddler (Ages 1-3), Starting School (Ages 4-6), Elementary School (Ages 7-10), Preteen Years (Ages 11-12), Teen Years (Ages 13-18), Into Adulthood as well as a printable Immunization Guide. 

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, many children have not received their vaccines according to the recommended schedule.  When children have not been vaccinated it increases the risk of outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles, chicken pox and pertussis or whooping cough. 

Call your primary care provider to schedule an appointment to get back on track!
