This is KNOWTIFY. Take a minute for your health.
Hi, this is Molly Howell, immunization director for the North Dakota Department of Health. August is National Immunization Awareness Month, which is a great time to remind all North Dakotans of the importance of routine wellness immunizations. We know during the pandemic that a number of North Dakotans maybe got behind on their immunizations. Vaccines are important because they protect against serious illnesses from shingles to measles, to even cancer. Make sure in August that you contact your trusted healthcare provider to make sure yourself and your children are up to date on wellness vaccines to protect them and yourself against serious diseases.
