Our Best Shot: Community Workshop Kit

Adult vaccination rates in the U.S. are dangerously low, falling far short of national targets, despite the  devastating effects vaccine-preventable diseases can have on older adults. The tools and educational materials in this workshop kit address the importance of vaccination later in life, and encourage older adults to protect themselves from these potentially deadly diseases.

Our Best Shot: Workshop Kit is designed for community leaders hosting workshops for seniors and their caregivers on the basics of vaccination. The "soup-to-nuts" kit covers how vaccines work, common vaccine-preventable diseases, vaccine safety and efficacy, the vaccine schedule for adults 60-64 and 65+, and where and how to get vaccinated.  Materials in the kit include:

Watch the presentation from the workshop kit launch, where two leaders from Area Agencies on Aging talk about their experience piloting the workshop kit, and share their tips on best practices.

All of the materials are free and we encourage you to download them, save them to your computer, print out copies, and get started on hosting this important workshop!  For questions, e-mail Lindsay Clarke at [email protected]
