Pregnancy Immunization Toolkit

Tdap and Flu vaccines during pregnancy - The Best Shot

Welcome! The Oregon Immunization Program has created this toolkit to encourage every member of clinics' staff to become a pregnancy vaccine champion. Pregnant people are more likely to get vaccinated when it’s recommended to them by each staff person they encounter. Giving pregnant people recommended immunizations during pregnancy is the best way protect newborns against whooping cough and flu, diseases that can be a serious threat to young infants.

We believe that you can play an important role in ensuring healthy parents and healthy babies! This pregnancy immunization toolkit provides resources that will transform you into a vaccine champion.

What's in the Toolkit?

The toolkit includes a video addressing why prenatal vaccines are integral in protecting expectant parents and their babies, strategies to increase prenatal vaccination rates, and tips on how to encourage pregnant people to get vaccinated. Also included are printable resources such as vaccine storage and handling resource guides and a helpful resources document.

Evaluation Survey

If you have used the Toolkit, please take a few minutes to tell us what you think. The survey should take 5-7 minutes to complete. Your thoughtful feedback will be used to measure how effective the material is and whether provider support staff feel equipped to recommend prenatal vaccines to their patients. Please answer the survey as fully and accurately as possible and be assured that all information will be kept confidential.
