New Infographic Promotes Child Care Worker Vaccinations

Bacteria and viruses can spread easily in a child care center, putting those who work with children — and the kids themselves — at greater risk of contracting vaccine-preventable illnesses. TMA's new infographic, Vaccinations for Child Care Workers, lists the shots recommended for people who work with children: flu, pertussis, chickenpox, and measles. 

Download the new bilingual infographic to your website, post it on social media, or order printed copies to display in your office. You also can ask your local day care centers to post a copy in their facilities.

The child care worker vaccination infographic is the latest addition to the family of infographics offered by TMA's Be Wise — ImmunizeSM program. TMA previously produced infographics on flu, human papillomavirus (HPV), whooping cough, and adult vaccinations

To order hard copies, email Tammy Wishard, TMA's outreach coordinator, or call (512) 370-1470 or (800) 880-1300, ext. 1470. 

Be Wise – Immunize is a joint initiative led by TMA physicians and medical students, and the TMA Alliance. It is funded in 2017 by TMA Foundation thanks to major gifts from H-E-B and TMF Health Quality Institute, along with generous contributions from physicians and their families. 

Be Wise — Immunize is a service mark of the Texas Medical Association.
