The Immunization Action Coalition provides PDF files that are as compatible as possible with a wide variety of Adobe Reader settings and versions. Nevertheless, it is possible that you may encounter problems reading and printing our PDFs.
Problems Downloading PDF Files
TIP:
Adobe Reader is required to view all handouts; it is free to download from the Adobe website.
TIP:
Many problems reading PDF files are solved following installation of the newest version of Adobe Reader. If you are using an earlier version of Adobe Reader, it may be time to download the latest version.
TIP:  
Instead of immediately displaying the downloaded PDF file in Adobe Reader, you may wish to save the file to your computer's hard drive and then open it in Adobe Reader. Doing so can avoid some problems within Adobe Reader that cause trouble when accessing the PDF file from the Web.

Problems Printing PDF Files
TIP:
Insufficient printer memory can cause problems when printing large PDF documents. One option to try is to download the file, then print a few pages at a time.
TIP:
If the PDF document does not print properly from Adobe Reader, you may need to select the "Shrink" box (located in the lower left corner of the print dialog box).
