Adult Immunization

"Adult Immunization" is a 17-minute video that features four families at life moments which require immunizations, including adopting children from another country, starting college, moving an elderly adult into the home, and fighting cancer.

This video was a project of the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Pennsylvania Immunization Coalition (PAIC), and several immunization coalitions from Southeastern Pennsylvania. An accompanying two-minute PSA features two of the stories. Both can be viewed and copies ordered on the PAIC website.

Meningococcus vaccine

Meningococcus can cause meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain) or sepsis (an infection of the bloodstream). The consequences of infection are often immediate and devastating. About 15 of every 100 people infected with meningococcus die within hours of becoming ill. This video will help you learn about meningococcus and why college students should get the meningococcal vaccine.
