In the spring and fall of 2013, the MDH Immunization Program ran an awareness campaign on billboards and buses in several cities across Minnesota. The messages convey the importance of getting vaccinated to protect yourself and the people you love. Posters have been developed based on the campaign and are available to order.
Keeping up-to-date on immunizations protects you and your unborn child.
Young children and the elderly are among the most vulnerable to vaccine-preventable diseases. Grandma and granddaughter can protect each other by being vaccinated.
Some people can't get certain immunizations because of medical conditions or treatments, and some people don't respond to immunization because of a weak immune system. Get immunized to help protect these people.
Measles is just a plane ride away from those living in the U.S. Making sure you have received two MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccines will help protect those who are too young to be vaccinated.
Whooping cough (pertussis) can be very serious, especially in newborns. It is recommended that pregnant women receive this vaccine during each pregnancy to help pass protection to their baby. Fathers, siblings, grandparents, and other close contacts of newborns should also be vaccinated.
Posters are available to order for free. Posters are 24" x 12". Download the order form: Immunization Materials (PDF: 83KB/5 pages). Posters are listed on page 2.
