Educational Materials For Daycare Centers To Inspire Vaccination

niiw-blog-a-thon-badgeSince 1994, communities throughout the United States have joined together during National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) to celebrate the critical role vaccination plays in protecting our children and our communities.  As we continue to recognize the achievements of immunization programs all across the country, as part of this year’s National Infant Immunization Week celebration, we’ve heard parents ask,

“What can I do to spread the word about the value of vaccines in my community?” 

One way parents can help promote healthy communities is by sharing materials that  help educate others about the benefits of timely immunizations for all ages.  Today, we invite parents to promote Every Child By Two’s Vaccinate Your Family program to local daycare centers through the use of specially designed educational materials.

Materials to Inspire Vaccination of Children in Daycare and their Families

In an effort to teach young children,  their parents,  grandparents, and other caregivers about the importance of immunizations, Every Child By Two (ECBT) has collaborated with Young Minds Inspired (YMI) to develop an educational program for daycare providers.  The materials don’t just focus on getting children their recommended vaccines, but also help to explain how parents, grandparents and caregivers can keep young family members healthy by keeping their own vaccinations up-to-date.

The materials were designed to be a combination of:

  • fun activities for children;
  • take-home handouts for parents, grandparents or other caregivers;
  • a wall poster for the daycare centers;
  • and an educator’s guide to raise awareness of the importance of vaccines for people of all ages.

Over 13,900 daycare centers across the nation have received the vaccine education program so far and the feedback has been extremely positive.  Both daycare providers and parents have indicated that the program is not only appealing, but has been very effective in communicating a strong message.

In honor of National Infant Immunization Week we invite you to share these materials with daycare providers in your local area.  

All the materials are available to download from ECBT’s Vaccinate Your Family website.  Additionally, there are a limited number of wall posters available, so please email info@ecbt.org to request yours before they are gone. Or you can always download the wall poster here.

By starting a conversation about vaccines with daycare providers in your area, parents can help encourage behaviors that will have a direct impact on their child’s daycare center and their local communities.  What a wonderful way to participate in National Infant Immunization Week.

    Educational materials shouldn’t just be sent to daycares. Doctor’s and med school students should also have information about vaccines.

    Imagine if your child had a horrible reaction to an antibiotic and the doctors dismissed you and told you that you aren’t seeing what is happening before your own eyes to your child. No, that wouldn’t happen with an antibiotic, the doctors would immediately recognize it, but it happens ever day in this country with vaccines. Because vaccines are a religion and we’ve all been brainwashed to believe they are safe, effective, and required, including the med school students who are not taught anything about vaccines or vaccine damage. Most doctors have never even heard of VAERS, the “mandatory” reporting system for vaccine injury. “Mandatory” because there is no punishment for not reporting, hence no incentive to report.

    JulieO, that is why the Vaccine Information Sheets are given with every vaccine. This has been a USA federal requirement for almost thirty years. It even includes information about VAERS (which anyone can file a report to) and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

    How come you did not know this? Did you not bother to read the stuff they give you in the clinic?

    Chris you are joking, right? Information sheets are NOT given each and every time with every vaccine given. Before I educated myself I had my children vaccinated many times and with different doctors and I was never given an information sheet. And, the information sheets don’t even include all of the necessary information to make an educated decision. It’s convenient that they leave off any information they choose to leave off. Hmmmmm

    If you document a provider not providing a VIS at clinic visit, then report that provider. They are required by federal law:

    And they do provide the all the necessary information. Sorry if they leave off all of the falsehoods that you read on certain biased websites. There is a reason for that: because they have to stick to reality.

    To highlight was Chris has stated, it is the LAW that the VIS be given to each and every person (or the parents) before vaccination.

    I’m sure what Julie is referring to is an “insert” which is a legal document, not a medical one.
