Improving the Vaccination Experience: Accessible Vaccination for Neurodiverse People at Any Age
People with Autism and other developmental disabilities have lower childhood immunization rates than their peers without Autism, leaving them vulnerable to many vaccine-preventable diseases. The vaccination visit can be especially traumatic and stressful for these families. Effective strategies exist to reduce pain and anxiety for these families during the vaccination visit.

Please join Immunize.org and experts from the Autism Society on December 13 at 1:00 pm (ET) for a free, live, 1-hour webinar, Improving the Vaccination Experience: Accessible Vaccination for Neurodiverse People at Any Age. In this webinar we will learn more about the Autism Society’s practical tips to improve vaccine confidence by providing a calm and pleasant vaccination visit.

If you work in or run a center where neurodiverse people receive vaccines, you will want to learn more from our speakers.

Following the presentation, ample time is reserved for your questions.

Register now to be sure you don’t miss this important session designed to help you increase vaccination access and equity for your neurodiverse patients.

Dec 13, 2022 01:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
