ScienceUpFirst, an initiative of the Canadian Association of Science Centres and Children's Healthcare Canada are joining forces on February 23 for National Kids and Vaccines Day 2023.
Routine vaccinations are critical for protection against a wide range of vaccine-preventable diseases. The rise of misinformation about vaccine safety and effectiveness has caused a dangerous reduction in the rate of vaccinated children - and we're not just talking about COVID. Kids are not being protected against many of the diseases we've been immunizing against for decades, including Measles, Polio, and Hepatitis B to name a few.
Last year we hosted the first-ever #KidsVaccinesDay. Join us for this second annual event where we bring together healthcare leaders and experts from across disciplines to help move the needle (pun intended) and promote vaccine confidence for Canada’s children.
Please join us via Zoom on Thursday, February 23rd at 5:00 pm PST / 8:00 pm EST.
