PKIDs: Hepatits B
PKIDs: Hepatitis B
One mother shares the account of her family's struggles with hepatitis B infection. When babies get infected with hepatits B virus, it usually remains in the body for a lifetime (this is called chronic hepatitis B). About 1 out of 4 infected babies will die of liver failure or liver cancer as adults. Hepatitis B is a deadly disease – but it’s preventable with vaccination. PKIDs has made each of these videos available in a variety of formats and lengths for use by your organization free-of-charge.

Baby Dies from Pertussis
When Callie was a couple weeks old, she developed a persistent cough, and during a return visit to the doctor, Callie stopped breathing and was rushed to the hospital. Two days later, Callie stopped breathing again and could not be saved. The young infant had contracted pertussis, a highly contagious bacterial disease.
CDC recommends that adolescents and adults, particularly those who have close contact with a young baby, should be immunized with a single Tdap booster vaccine against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis.
