About A Grade

During the 2013 - 2014 school year, NASN was seeking stellar examples of how school nurses were promoting immunizations in their schools.  In particular, what school nurses were doing to promote those vaccines currently recommended but not necessarily mandated for school attendance.

School-located immunization initiatives could range from an educational initiative targeting a specific vaccine, to planning and implementing a school-located vaccination clinic. 

Your stories inspire others to spread positive immunization messaging and improve vaccine uptake!

This initiative is supported in part by a grant from MedImmune
