Vaccines: A #ShotOfScience

For more than fifty years, billions of doses of vaccines have been safely administered in the US with few serious adverse events. Since the beginnings of vaccine science in 1798, we have made great strides in the fight against infectious diseases like measles, flu, polio, and smallpox (which has been eradicated). Although vaccines may have rare side effects, the benefits clearly outweigh the risks.

To promote better understanding of the importance of vaccines, the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) is launching #ShotOfScience: a campaign focused on spreading awareness about vaccine science, safety, and effectiveness.

Join the effort and help us spread the word by sharing this message on your social media channels! Follow #ShotOfScience and visit www.nfid.org/vaccine-science for more information on the science of vaccines.
