This August, HepVu joins the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Public Health Information Coalition (NPHIC), and other public health organizations in encouraging patients, parents, and healthcare professionals to understand the health benefits of getting immunized against vaccine-preventable diseases.
The CDC maintains easy-to-understand vaccination schedules for minors, adults, and expectant mothers for publicly available vaccines in the United States. Whether it be for COVID-19, viral hepatitis, measles or influenza, immunizations are critically important to maintaining health throughout one’s life. This month reminds people:
- You have the power to protect yourself against vaccine-preventable diseases.
- Vaccines are safe and effective at preventing serious diseases.
- Vaccinate on time.
- Vaccination is the best protection.
Currently, both Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B are preventable with vaccines. As an organization dedicated to hepatitis elimination by making data on viral hepatitis widely available, easily accessible, and locally relevant to inform public health decision making, HepVu offers many free resources to increase awareness about viral hepatitis and locate viral hepatitis vaccination options near you.
