Immunization rates in California have dropped precipitously during the COVID-19 pandemic, raising alarm bells for the health and safety of our children, patients and families.
This California campaign is designed to remind parents and adults: #DontWaitVaccinate.
Delayed routine vaccinations put families and communities at risk for infection with vaccine preventable diseases. It’s essential to ensure our infants and toddlers are safe and our school-aged students are ready for the school year ahead. It’s also important that adults continue to receive recommended vaccines. And in the fall, everyone 6 months and older should get the influenza vaccine.
This toolkit is designed to help health care professionals, health plans, public health information officers, immunization program managers, coalitions, school administrators, advocates and partner organizations work together to support providers and urge patients to schedule and keep routine checkups and immunization visits.
Included in the toolkit you’ll find a variety of messaging to share with your networks to encourage patients to reconnect with their providers. You are encouraged to tailor these messages to meet the needs of your local community.
Please bookmark this page and check back regularly, as we will continue to update the kit with additional social media messages and tools.
