Adult Vaccine Handouts

The Project

In 2015 I wrote and designed handouts intended to educate people 60 years and older about CDC-recommended immunizations: influenza (flu), pneumococcal, zoster (shingles), and hepatitis B (HBV). This resource was included in the Adult Immunization Toolkit created by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health’s Immunization Program.

Accessibility

The audience for this project was adults age 60 years and older. With this population in mind I created a clean design with high contrast colors and large font and heavy weight. I used plain language in the copy to make sure the content would be easily understood and accessible.

This handout was also translated by two of my amazing coworkers (Sarah Bonilla, MPH and Fan Zhang, MPH) at the Health Department into Spanish and Chinese to ensure information about vaccines is accessible to immigrant communities in Philadelphia.

Distribution

Handouts were available to download on the Health Department’s website and distributed in print to primary care providers in the city of Philadelphia.
