Hepatitis Awareness Month

The month of May is designated as Hepatitis Awareness Month in the United States, and May 19th is Hepatitis Testing Day. During May, CDC and our public health partners work to shed light on the impact of these hidden epidemics by raising awareness of viral hepatitis while encouraging testing and vaccination. Hepatitis Awareness Month activities help to improve everyone’s understanding of viral hepatitis transmission and risk factors and to decrease social stigma against viral hepatitis.

Get involved!

CDC will focus on three themes this Hepatitis Awareness Month. We encourage you to incorporate these themes and key messages in your promotion activities.


Week 1 theme: May 6-10: Reaching key populations and high-impact settings


Week 2 theme: May 13-17: Protecting young families and pregnant persons


Week 3 theme: May 20-24: Accelerating hepatitis C point-of-care testing to expand test-to-cure


 April 22 – 29, 2024

National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is a yearly observance held in April, highlighting the importance of protecting children two years and younger from vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs). NIIW is April 22-29, 2024. CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend that children stay on track with their well-child appointments and routine vaccinations. On-time vaccination is critical to provide protection against potentially life-threatening diseases. Learn more at CDC: National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW).
