May is Toddler Immunization Month (TIM)! At Shot by Shot, we’ve been following California’s continuing very high rate of whooping cough illness. Stories help spread awareness about the human faces behind the numbers of vaccine-preventable diseases. Visit our Story Gallery to find a growing collection of whooping cough stories (written and video). We invite educators and the larger health community to use these and Shot by Shot’s many other stories (including Hib, flu, rotavirus, Hep B, pneumococcal, and varicella) to promote awareness during TIM and beyond.
Stories in action: Last month, Shot by Shot invited to share our project at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health’s StoryCon 2015. The gathering was dedicated to the power of stories in advancing public health. We were very honored to take part!
Together we can stop disease!
