Meet Queenie

Queenie Gets Her Shots was created as a part of our Section’s participation in the Good Health WINs (Women’s Immunization Networks) Initiative.

About Queenie

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 hesitancyespecially 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.

Queenie Gets Her Shots was funded by grants from:

California V-58 Neighborhood

Oakland Rotary #3

NorCal Region of NCNW

Our project partners were:
