Video Promoting Vaccines for Older Adults
Promote immunization awareness among your patients using this brief animated film, Our Best Shot, from the Alliance for Aging Research that encourages older adults to lead their families in vaccination by getting their recommended vaccines while asking others to do so as well. The video shows how vaccines work, explains their benefit later in life, and supports patient-to-doctor communication.
