Toolkit to Promote Vaccines for Older Adults Available!

With over 50 percent of annual flu-related hospitalizations involving people age 65-plus, n4a has teamed up with Alliance for Aging Research for the "Our Best Shot" campaign, a public education initiative that urges older adults to get life-saving vaccinations and encourage their loved ones to do the same.

The centerpiece of the campaign is a FREE, easy-to-use community leader toolkit that has resources to conduct successful workshops on the importance of vaccinations for older adults. The toolkit includes a short film highlighting how vaccines work and why they are important, an educational patient brochure, participant quizzes and a slide presentation to guide discussion throughout the workshop—everything a AAA, Title VI or provider needs to host an effective community workshop!

You can also join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter by using the hastag #OurBestShot to spread the word about this important campaign.
