August Immunization Month

The Pennsylvania House with House Resolution 938 declared August to be “National Immunizations Month” says State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129).

“The Pennsylvania Department of Health offers assistance to obtain vaccinations through the federally funded Vaccines for Children program, which provides access to immunizations for low-income and underinsured children up to age 18,” Cox said. “Additionally, uninsured children in Pennsylvania are eligible for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), regardless of income.”

The resolution also encourages adults to review their immunizations with their physicians. Adult vaccination recommendations can be found here.
