In support of National Immunization Awareness Month, HRSA urges health centers and health care providers to “catch-up to get ahead” on childhood immunizations. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to alarming declines in well-child visits and routine immunization rates. This raises the risk for outbreaks and further strain on our nation’s health care system.
To increase childhood immunization rates, HHS is coordinating the “Catch-up to Get Ahead” effort. Promote the importance of childhood immunizations by using social media messages and graphics from the Catch-up to Get Ahead Toolkit.
