Immunization Social Media Messaging

Help spread positive messaging about vaccines to your patients and use IAFP's already made social media messages.

Flu – Educate yourself before the 2018-2019 Flu Season! The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends routine annual influenza vaccinations for all persons aged ≥ 6 months who have no contraindications. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/acip-recs/vacc-specific/flu.html

Adult Immunizations – Most adults are unaware that they need vaccines! Talk to your healthcare provider at your next visit about important vaccines you may need! https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/adult.html

Vaccine Hesitancy – Concerned about vaccinations for you or your children? Vaccines are effective, safe, necessary, and well-studied!  https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents/index.html

HPV – The need for HPV immunization is NOT a label! The HPV vaccination is safe and effective. Vaccinate your sons and daughters as a means of cancer prevention! https://www.cdc.gov/hpv/parents/vaccine.html

Did you know there is a vaccine that can protect against HPV types that most commonly cause related cancers? The CDC recommends that all boys and girls ages 11 to 12 receive two doses of HPV vaccine to be fully protected against HPV-related disease. Ask your pediatrician or family doctor about HPV vaccination! https://www.cdc.gov/hpv/parents/vaccine.html

Adolescent Immunizations – Is your adolescent fully vaccinated? Talk to your healthcare provider at your next visit to make sure your child is protected and learn which vaccines your child may need! https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/easy-to-read/preteen-teen.html

Pertussis - Welcoming a new baby into your family? Are you a parent, grandparent, or other caregiver? Ask your doctor if you need to catch up on your pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine.  https://www.cdc.gov/pertussis/index.html

Meningococcal Disease -  All ready to send your child to college?  Did you arm your child with the vaccine that will protect them from the meningococcal disease? Meningitis can be caused by bacteria or a virus that is often spread through close contact, including hugging and kissing, or by sharing food, cups, or utensils. The most effective way to protect your child is to make sure they receive the meningococcal vaccine. Ask about it today! https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/mening/public/index.html

Pneumonia Vaccine - Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs that may occur on its own, or after a cold or the flu. While pneumonia can be very serious for young children and people over the age of 65, other adults are at risk, too. Ask your primary care doctor about the pneumococcal disease vaccine. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/pneumo/public/index.html

Do you have a chronic illness such as heart, liver, kidney, or lung disease, diabetes, or a weakened immune system?  You can be at risk for pneumonia.  Good news is there is a safe & effective vaccine.  Ask your primary care doctor about the pneumonia vaccine and if it is recommended for you. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/pneumo/public/index.html
