CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases recently launched the first video in a new, animated video series for parents titled “How Vaccines Work.” In these short videos, viewers follow baby Jack and his parents as they get answers to common vaccine-related questions and learn more about the importance of vaccinating on schedule. The first video describes how vaccines fight germs and provide long-lasting protection against 14 serious diseases. Please share with your patients with children.

CDC will be launching two additional videos in February and March on the following topics: “Vaccines and Your Baby’s Immune System” and “What to Expect When Your Child is Vaccinated.”
