As you know, vaccines are the best way to help protect teens against serious infectious diseases.1 However, millions of teens remain under-vaccinated against these diseases, particularly meningococcal meningitis and human papillomavirus (HPV), which both require a multi-dose vaccine series to help protect teens.2,3

Stats4Vax: Improving teen vaccination rates one school nurse at a time (Stats4Vax), a collaboration between NASN and Sanofi Pasteur, aims to improve teen vaccination rates by providing support, materials, and tools for school nurses and other healthcare providers to help guide conversations with parents/guardians to see that their teens are up-to-date on their immunizations.

Stats4Vax Resource Library

For high school nurses nationwide

To help improve vaccination rates in your schools, we’ve created the Stats4Vax Resource Library. Below, you'll find easy-to-use materials that you can tailor to meet the needs of your student population. Materials and tools include letters home to parents/guardians, a talk track with messages to help you proactively discuss the importance of vaccination with students, and content to help educate parents/guardians about teen vaccination to use via social media, school newsletters, or the school website. We hope you use these materials and tools when speaking with your students’ parents/guardians about the importance of vaccination!
