Nassau County, NY - April 16, 2014 - In recognition of National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW), Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Health Commissioner Dr. Lawrence Eisenstein are reminding parents, caregivers and healthcare providers of the critical role that vaccinations provide in safeguarding our children. NIIW is an annual observance to promote the benefits of immunizations and to improve the health of children two years old or younger.

“Each year over 15,000 babies are born in Nassau County who will need to be vaccinated,” said County Executive Mangano. “National Infant Immunization Week is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness about the important role that vaccinations provide in protecting the health of our children, families and communities.”

“Vaccines are among the most successful public health tools available for preventing disease and death,” said County Health Commissioner Lawrence Eisenstein, M.D. “Immunizations not only protect vaccinated individuals, but also help protect the entire community by preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases such as pertussis and measles.”

Vaccines have significantly reduced vaccine-preventable diseases in the United States. However, many of these diseases still circulate in the Unites States and around the world, so continued vaccination is essential to protect everyone from potential outbreaks. Families are encouraged to check with their healthcare providers to ensure their children’s immunizations are up-to-date, especially if plans include international travel.

Additional information and vaccination schedules may be obtained by visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s web site at www.cdc.gov/vaccines. Nassau County residents may also call the Nassau County Department of Health Immunization Hotline at (516)227-9416.
