ImmuNYze: NY Vaccination Campaign Website

The Campaign to ImmuNYze all New Yorkers is an initiative of the County Health Officials of New York (NYSACHO), created to heighten awareness about the need to immunize throughout life—from infancy to senior years. The goal is to unite patients, parents and providers around this important issue, as well as offer reliable, scientific-based information on vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases.

The Campaign strives to provide up-to-date, accessible information about adult and child immunizations with the goal of increasing vaccination rates throughout the state. Please visit their website for more information on the importance of vaccinations, and how they can be acquired.
