  1. This playlist is part of a set of 52 COVID-19 FAQ explainer videos to answer the frequently asked questions about the types of vaccines including eligibility, safety, at-risk groups, rollout, intervals, common side effects, importance of two doses and who needs the vaccine and many more.
  2. Even though COVID-19 vaccines have been developed in record time, the processes involved in vaccine development and testing have not been compromised. At the time of vaccine deployment through Emergency Use Authorization, except for rare and very rare adverse events, the safety of COVID-19 vaccines have been validated through clinical trials. After COVID-19 vaccines are introduced, the recipients will be carefully followed up for all - including rare - adverse events.
  3. Vaccines save between 2 million and 3 million lives each year and protect the entire population from more than a dozen life-threatening diseases. Thanks to vaccination, smallpox was eradicated in 1980, and we are on track to eradicate polio. However, despite great strides in the control of measles, one of the most contagious diseases known, the last few years have unfortunately seen an increase in cases. This is why high vaccination coverage—95% or more—is needed, posing a major technical and communication challenge for health workers. Studies show that telling people about the quality, safety
  4. Communication about COVID-19 vaccine safety will play a key role in maintaining the public’s confidence in vaccination. Effective communication will require planning and resources, which need to be in place as early as possible before COVID-19 vaccines are available. This module provides guidance on communicating about COVID-19 vaccine safety from a programme perspective.
  5. In recognition of the critical importance of COVID-19 vaccines and the need to understand their safety, the CONSIDER (COvid-19 vacciNe Safety questIons anD hEalthcare pRoviders) working group (WG) was created in September 2020. The CONSIDER WG aims to provide clear, comprehensive answers to questions pertaining to COVID-19 vaccine safety prior to, and during the vaccines roll out to 1) facilitate scientific discussion between stakeholders, including front line health workers with potential vaccine recipients and 2) increase comprehension and transparency of information to facilitate accep
  6. In order to raise awareness among specialists and the general public about the importance of not delaying vaccination because of the new coronavirus (Sars-COV-2), SBIm - in partnership with the Brazilian Society of Pediatrics (SBP) and the Fundo das das United Nations for Children (UNICEF) - carried out the campaign “Vaccination up to date, even in the pandemic”. The initiative highlights the digital booklet "Pandemia of COVID-19: what changes in the routine of immunizations", which contains guidelines on how to maintain vaccination activities during the period and communication strategie
  7. This leaflet provides essential information on the programme so that parents can give informed consent for their daughters and sons to have their 2 HPV vaccinations. It is translated in several languages.
  8. This guide presents communication guidance for countries introducing human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine at the national or sub-national levels. HPV vaccination is a key strategy for comprehensive cervical cancer control and prevention. By the end of 2015, more than 65 countries introduced HPV vaccine into their national immunization programmes, with more than 30 of them were approved for Gavi-supported introductions. This guide offers guidance in three main areas: the first is advice on basic communication planning and implementation for immunization; the second discusses specific conside
  9. Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) is proud that the award-winning PBS television documentary series, Visionaries, hosted by Sam Waterston, is including the story of Dr. Deborah L. Wexler, founder and executive director of IAC, in its 24th season. The Visionaries episode, Protecting Health: Saving Lives, showcases Dr. Wexler’s commitment to supporting the nation’s healthcare professionals with immunization education information and materials.
  10. Information for parents available in German, English, French and Russian: If you choose not to vaccinate your child, understand the risks and responsibilities. This document can be given to parents who are reluctant to vaccinate to help them understand the implications of such a decision.
  11. A synopsis of the manual for program managers and health professionals to prevent, identify and respond to stress-related responses following immunization
