REVISED EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS ARE READY TO DOWNLOAD FROM
IAC'S WEBSITE!

At the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC), we have been busy updating some of our immunization print materials for health professionals and patients. Now we are sending them out to you! Internet links to both text versions (HTML format) and camera-ready versions (PDF format) of these materials are provided below. Simply visit the URL listed beneath each item for the version that you want to view or download. For "Tips on Downloading and Printing Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) Files," go to: http://www.immunize.org/nslt.d/tips.htm

English-language versions of our materials are reviewed for technical accuracy by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Remember that all of our materials are camera ready and copyright free, so you can download one copy and make as many additional copies as you need!

All of our materials carry publication or revision dates at the bottom. If you are using an old version of an item, be sure to discard it and use the updated version listed below. In addition to announcements such as this in "IAC EXPRESS," new and revised materials are regularly announced on the IAC home page in the right column under "What's New?" at: http://www.immunize.org/
