Children’s book characters,
Ivy + Bean, are on a mission to stop the measles through vaccination!
As a follow-up to the 2014 launch, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), Measles & Rubella Initiative (M&RI), and other partners have introduced a new set of educational materials, featuring the precocious duo, now available for doctors, schools, child care centers, and other child health providers.
Vaccination is the single-best way to protect our children from
measles—a very serious respiratory disease that is contagious. In recent years, the United States has faced several measles outbreaks as a result of poor immunization coverage. To prevent future breakouts and educate parents, children, and the community about why the
measles vaccine is so important, the AAP is offering these free educational materials for a limited time only.
FREE Resources Now Available:
What's inside the kit? The
Ivy+Bean vs The Measles resources will include a double-sided poster, coloring/comic books, stickers, and temporary tattoos, all featuring Ivy + Bean. Organizations, clinics, and schools serving children are eligible to request materials at no cost. A limited number of Spanish materials will also be available!
