Immunization Resources in Multiple Languages

From the NLM Outreach and Special Populations Branch: August is National Immunization Awareness Month, and public health professionals often need resources to educate individuals who may have limited English proficiency about the importance of receiving vaccinations for themselves and their children. Check MedlinePlus for resources on immunizations and childhood immunizations in both English and Spanish. Also check HealthReach for patient handouts in multiple languages about vaccinations, including: Vaccine Information Statements on specific vaccines, like the chickenpox vaccine (24 languages), diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTaP) vaccine (27 languages),  measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine (25 languages), and more. Immunizations for Babies: A Guide for Parents (9 languages): This one-page handout uses a shot schedule to educate parents and other caregivers about when their baby should receive all recommended vaccinations. When Do Children and Teens Need Vaccinations? (8 languages): This one-page handout uses a shot schedule checklist to educate people about when in life it is recommended that children and teens receive particular vaccinations. Vaccinations for Adults: You’re Never too Old to Get Immunized (8 languages): This one-page handout educates people about recommended vaccinations for adults.
