What's news:

Grandparents often don't realize there are three illnesses passed between older and younger generations – flu, pneumonia and whooping cough – that are preventable with immunizations. Informing young and old is the goal of Valuing Vaccinations Across Generations (#bandAGEofhonor), an awareness campaign we launched this year in partnership with The Gerontological Society of America and the American Academy of Pediatrics. See our press release.
