PreteenVaxScene: Adolescent Immunization Webinar Series

In observance of Cervical Health Awareness Month in January, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Adolescent Immunization Communications Team is proud to present the “Taming Conversations Around HPV Vaccine and Other Immunizations in Social Media” webinar series.  This weekly presentation will address various aspects of engaging with negative comments or safety concerns on social media platforms.  Discussion will be mostly focused on HPV vaccine, and the unique challenges that come with it; however many principles that we will address are relevant to immunization overall.  Each webinar will offer perspectives from experts in immunization, vaccine safety, vaccine acceptance, and social media.
