SHOW THIS VARICELLA VIDEO AND WATCH PARENTS LINE UP THEIR CHILDREN!

After parents watch "Varicella Vaccine: A Giant Step Towards Disease Prevention" they'll line up to get their children vaccinated against chickenpox, a disease that kills approximately 100 people a year, hospitalizes another 10,000, and causes complications in 150,000 - 200,000 more. Produced by Michigan State University, this 16-minute video describes chickenpox, its complications, how the chickenpox vaccine works, who is at risk, and for whom it is recommended. Real life experiences and graphic footage of people with varicella disease is included. Only $15 a copy (one free copy if you're from Michigan). Fax your request for an order form to Michigan State University Health Promotion Program at 517/432-0155 or call 517/353-2596.
