Queenie Gets Her Shots was created as a part of our Section’s participation in the Good Health WINs (Women’s Immunization Networks) Initiative.
Our goal was to create an innovative way to share the importance of immunizations for vaccine preventable diseases with our community. We were keenly aware that vaccine hesitancyespecially among children is often a result of being afraid of getting shots. A children’s coloring book, we believed, would be the best way for us address this issue.
