Vaccines 101: Information for WIC Staff (2017 Edition)
ECBT created the Vaccines 101: Information for WIC Staff booklet for the participants of the ECBT's upcoming 2017 Immunization Webinar for WIC Staff. The booklet contains key vaccination messages; information on vaccines and the diseases they prevent; real life stories of families affected by vaccine-preventable diseases; immunization schedules; information on pregnant women vaccination; information on screening and referring WIC participants; and a list of additional immunization resources. Although originally created for WIC staff, this may be a helpful resource for any vaccine advocate.
