National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) is an annual movement held in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages. Communities across the country use August every year to raise awareness about the important role vaccines play in preventing serious – even sometimes deadly – diseases across the lifespan.
Find CDC Immunization Resources
The CDC has developed immunization materials you can use in outreach and education efforts during NIAM and throughout the year. You can find CDC promotional and educational resources for every audience; from pregnant women to young children to adolescents to adults. Check out CDC’s website for immunization partners.
Check with your state or local health department to see if they have additional immunization resources you can use during NIAM or plans to celebrate the month.

Difficult Patients Welcome
We don’t refuse those patients diagnosed as a difficult case. At New Hope Fertility Center, we welcome patients rejected by other fertility specialists because they are deemed to be hopelessly infertile.
- No refusals based on a woman’s advanced maternal age
- No refusals based on low FSH levels
- No refusals based on the number of potential eggs (follicles) a woman can produce per fresh cycle
- No refusals because a woman does not respond well to fertility medication
One Good Egg Policy
Customized IVF care is the best. Remember: It only takes one good egg and one healthy sperm to make a baby. Our focus is to help you produce good quality eggs during a fresh IVF cycle – not a high quantity of eggs using large doses of injectable fertility medications.
