Immunizations have been the most effective public health intervention of all time (followed by proper sewage treatment and garbage disposal). We celebrate our successes and sharpen our focus on doing an even better job executing this important intervention every year during National Infant Immunization Week– which is next week. Our overall objective is to encourage parents and healthcare providers to do their very best to protect babies from preventable diseases. This year’s events highlight the need to do better protecting infants from whooping cough (pertussis) by encouraging everyone to get up to date with the Tdap booster. Pertussis has been on the upswing in AZ over the last year or so- and we’re trying to use our public health tools to help sharpen our focus. You can check out next week’s events in our media release.
