What is Vacc-u-cation?

Vacc-u-cation is an education on the science of vaccines. A rise in misunderstanding of what vaccines do and what they contain has occurred in the United States and other countries. Vacc-u-cation's goal is to educate people on not just why it's important to vaccinate, but how they work to help keep people safe.

I am a science teacher, and I have shared this video with my students in our cell unit to help them learn more about how the cells use vaccines to create immunity to diseases.

Very nice work Brekke! I’m a troop leader and a cancer survivor. Email me and I’d love to share my positive experience with you. There aren’t enough character spaces to share my vaccine story here. :)

Very well done and a great easy to understand. This is a very timely and important topic as evidenced by the recent measles outbreak in this country.

Great job making it easy to understand! :) I shared it on my Facebook

This is nothing anybody hasn't heard before. Where do I find you justifying the injecting of mercury and formaldehyde into my kid's body? Why not address the elephant in the room DIRECTLY.

Marvelous video! I work in pharmacy, and this is great! Thank you for making it.

Diane R. Mueller, RN, FNP-BC

This is just an excellent explanation of vaccines. Evidence based and very entertaining. You should share with key audiences such as pediatricians, school nurses, etc.

As a scientist, I appreciate your project! All the points you make are easy to understand, very informative, and I learned something new today. Proud to be a girl scout!

Also :) If you have a facebook page link to it here and if not - make one!

SO GREAT! Ideas 1) make social sharing easier to find 2) Highlight some of the information contained in the site on the landing page and link directly from there, not only from your nav. LOVE IT!

Keep up the good work! We need this education available to everyone! This is so incredibly important!

26.11.2018 17:28

Karen Rockwell

Fantastic work! You have summarized the information very well, and your FAQ section has good answers and resources. (I am a biomedical researcher with a PhD in immunology - you got the info right)

26.11.2018 17:05

Daniel

Great job with the site and trying to educate the ignorant. If it changes just 1 mind, you've been successful. Obviously I hope for more than just 1 mind changed, but everything starts small.

26.11.2018 09:02

Jennifer

Well done from Canada!

26.11.2018 02:36

Danyelle

I love that you set this up in an easy to navigate format and kept it all informative with links to the sources. Can you add in a section on recommended vaccines during pregnancy in your FAQ area?

26.11.2018 01:07

Teresa Bair

Well done! Congratulations on a carefully designed account of how vaccinations work! My hope is that your video will go viral. We are in great need to circulate this education!

Beckie Pitts

One thing you might add if you can is what else is in the syringe, like preservatives. Parents are very afraid of it.

23.10.2018 02:51

Tinkerbell DeNeverland

Thank you so much for the suggestion! I will add that to the FAQ section soon.

22.10.2018 15:41

Beckie Pitts

I love this! I think it could be very valuable to parents of newborns who do not wish to vaccinate their babies.

22.10.2018 13:37

Ingrid Marshall

Can this link be shared on social media? I have several close friends who are against vaccines and would like to get this information out there to them and others that may be against them.
