On April 18 from 5-8 pm, the Minnesota Childhood Immunization Coalition will be marking National Infant Immunization Week with an online event featuring four experts (including Dr. Paul Offit and Patsy Stinchfield) who will be on Facebook to chat and answer questions. We would like you to attend this event and to help us get out the word about it!


Be Part of our NIIW Facebook Live! Event

On April 18 between 5-8 pm, we will have the honor of welcoming Dr. Paul Offit from the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospitals of Philadelphia, Patsy Stinchfield from Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, Stephanie Rodriguez-Moser IBCLC from Lakewood Health System in Staples, and Emily Stevenson–a Minnesota mom whose baby contracted pertussis at six weeks old.

We will post short videos from each of them, and you will be able to ask questions in the comment sections of those videos by going to the Discussion section of THIS EVENT. Each of them will also be online between 5-8pm that evening in order to answer your questions and chat with you.

Have questions or thoughts? Comment on the post AT THE EVENT PAGE. Please be aware that the event will be actively moderated, and we will not accept any hostile or attacking comments.

On April 19, we will award prizes, including copies of Eula Biss’ On Immunity and Tara Haelle and Emily Willignham’s The Informed Parent. Those who made comments or asked questions on April 18th before 8:00 pm CDT on the video posts at the event page will be automatically entered into the drawing.
