Back-to-School Immunization Toolkit

Welcome

These resources will help you to promote the importance of school vaccination and to help your parents, students, and staff be prepared and protected at the start of the school year! Inside you will find flyers, brochures, videos, social media posts, and everything to prepare you for this school year. It is important that we protect our schools and state!

We encourage you to use this toolkit to:

  • Help your students and parents to be prepared and ready for school.
  • Encourage your students and parents to visit their primary care provider and to understand their school requirement for immunization
  • Promote sharing of this information by parents via social media sites
  • Ensure a unified message among providers, administrators, school medical staff, and parents
