AVAC Updates - NIAM & Upcoming Hill Meetings

Below, please find some updates from AVAC

National Immunization Awareness Month:  AVAC released a new blog earlier this week on the essential role of public health and immunization.  It helps to promote NIAMs activities.  We have updated the dropbox with some messaging to help promote the blog.  You can also access AVACs infographics and the Op Ed template, both are a great resource to utilize during NAIM. 

Hill Meetings: Now that things have finally slowed down, it is a great time to catch up with staff on the Hill (that is, when they aren’t on vacation)! We will be scheduling a number of meetings in August.  Here is what we have so far.  Please join when you can.
