Note: The webinar hosting company has changed platforms; therefore, you may notice slight differences in the appearance of the registration and event screens. However, the event should work similarly to past events. We suggest that after receiving the registration email, participants follow the instructions related to testing the system. This will prevent issues on the day of the event.
If you have questions or you are unable to get your system to work in the weeks leading up to the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Vaccine coloring book
If you are looking for a resource to discuss vaccines with young children, you may be interested in the Vaccine Education Center’s new coloring book. Titled “My Vaccine Activity Book,” the 16-page book includes coloring pages as well as games and puzzles for children to enjoy while learning about vaccines. The book uses images from the animations in the “Vaccines and your Baby” video and includes novel illustrations of vaccine scientists, including Drs. Maurice Hilleman and Stanley Plotkin. Children can also complete a certificate for helping to keep their community safe when they are vaccinated.
Up to 100 coloring books can be ordered for $1 each plus shipping. Quantities of 100 or more can be ordered for $0.75 each plus shipping.
