Vaccination: Protecting your Baby from the Beginning

Vaccination is one of the best ways to protect pregnant women, infants, and toddlers from vaccine-preventable diseases, which can be especially dangerous to them.

To educate parents about the importance of vaccination, WIN has developed an initiative called Vaccination: Protecting your Baby from the Beginning. As part of this initiative we have created a DVD and a provider tootlkit with printable patient education materials, which cover:

  • Maternal vaccination

  • Vaccination of close contacts of infants

  • Early childhood vaccination

The video is approximately 9 minutes in length and features two West Virginia healthcare providers. It is great for use in childbirth and new parent classes, waiting and exam rooms, and other locations. The printed materials, along with links to other helpful websites for providers, are also available for download below.

DVDs can be ordered, free of charge, by contacting the WIN Program Manager.

Please join us in this effort to protect pregnant women, infants and toddlers from vaccine-preventable diseases. For more information about Vaccination: Protecting your Baby from the Beginning or about WIN and its work, please contact WIN. Thank you for all that you do to improve the health of pregnant women and children in West Virginia!

Support for this initiative was provided by grants from the EQT Foundation and JBS International.
