Did you know? August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM). In 2021, this annual observance comes during a time of heightened awareness surrounding COVID-19 vaccines, and also serves as a reminder about the importance of getting ALL recommended vaccines throughout your life. You have the power to protect yourself and your family against serious diseases [like whooping cough, cancers caused by HPV, and pneumonia] through on-time vaccination.
York Hospital encourages you to talk to your doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional to ensure you, and your family members, are all up to date on recommended vaccines. The York Hospital Vaccine Services office is located at 12 Hospital Drive, Suite B in York, Maine. Please visit the web page at: www.yorkhospital.com/vaccine-services-travel-medicine/or call (207) 351-3530 if you have questions about recommended vaccines. We also encourage you to visit the CDC’s Interactive Vaccine Guide, which provides information on the vaccines recommended throughout life. Visit www.cdc.gov/vaccines/growing/
In addition, during this extended time of uncertainty due to the prolonged pandemic, please be sure to regularly visit www.yorkhospital.com/covid-19-updates/ for the most up-to-date information about the COVID-19 virus, testing and vaccines at York Hospital.
