Educational Resources for Staff and Students
As part of its Vaccinate Your Baby campaign, ECBT created a website to educate the public about vaccines, the importance of timely immunizations and the safety of vaccines. School and daycare personnel and students can find credible, science-based information about vaccines on this website as well as on the CDC website. Additionally, ECBT has created a
list of credible organizations and websites for those staff and students who are looking for additional information on vaccines. Additional immunization resources created by ECBT and other trusted organizations can be found in the Resources section of this website.
For those school nurses looking to play a more active role in promoting immunizations in their school community, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) have a variety of resources available including:
Month-to-Month Seasonal Influenza Awareness Campaign and Related Vaccine Resources for the School Nurse
The HPV Vaccine - Enhancing School Nurse Knowledge to Support Informed Vaccine Decision Making (A Reference and Resource List)
AAP's Adolescent Immunization for School Nurses
The CDC has also dedicated a section of their website to Seasonal Flu Information for Schools & Childcare Providers. This site contains links to a number of guidance documents and other flu-related resources.
Teachers who wish to include vaccine education in their curriculum will find ready-made curriculum created by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for high school students titled Emerging and Re-Emerging Infectious Diseases. The California Immunization Coalition also created a list of suggested preteen-friendly activities for teachers wishing to incorporate immunization messages into their curriculum.
Additionally, Khan Academy, a not-for-profit organization whose goal is to change education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere, has a number of vaccine education videos available on their website.
