New Film: The Importance of Vaccines for Older Adults

In recognition of August’s National Immunization Awareness Month, the Alliance for Aging Research has released a new “pocket” film, Our Best Shot: The Importance of Vaccines for Older Adults. The film urges seniors to lead their families in vaccination by getting their recommended vaccines and encouraging their loved ones to do the same. The film provides an overview of how vaccines work, highlights the importance of vaccination, debunks common myths and misconceptions, addresses the need for vaccination later in life, encourages communication with healthcare professionals, and reminds older adults of their influential role in increasing the immunity of their families and social circles.

This film is part of a larger community workshop kit being developed through a partnership with the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) that will be released broadly around National Grandparents Day in mid-September.  The film, and accompanying community events, will be a drumbeat for seniors across the country to mobilize themselves and their families to get the vaccines that they need to protect their health.
