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.
CONCLUSIONS: The patient's perception of safety is good, although it can be improved. No strengths have been identified. The weaknesses identified are staffing, management support for patient safety, handoffs and transitions, and safety perception. PMID: 30642698 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion Because the mainstream media has financial interest in promoting vaccines, informed parents must seek information elsewhere about back to school vaccine mandates and exemptions. Parents, as you prepare to send your child back to school, do your homework and determine which exemptions are available in your area. A list of vaccine exemptions for all fifty states is published online by the National Vaccine Information Center. Sharing this article with other parents will also help them make informed decisions about vaccines. References: http://www.nvic.org/vaccine-laws/state-vaccine-requirements.aspx http://www.oma...
ConclusionsThis is the largest study of RMS to date demonstrating a possible protective effect of immunizations against the development of childhood RMS. Further studies are needed to validate our findings. Our findings add to the growing body of literature, suggesting a protective role of routine vaccinations in childhood cancer and specifically in childhood RMS.
