National Infant Immunization Week

April 20th through the 27th marks National Infant Immunization Week.
 
The annual observance is meant to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases in communities across the nation.
 
Specifically in Maine, nearly 36 babies are born each day that will need to be immunized against 14 vaccine-preventable diseases before age two.
 
Currently the "Pine Tree State" ranks 36th in the nation for childhood immunizations.
 
Doctors want people to know that immunization is a shared responsibility. Families, health care professionals and public health officials must work together to help protect the entire community.
 
Also with adult vaccinations, this helps protect infants from some of the infectious diseases.
