Shaila Jiwa, BScN, RN, MScPPH, Vaccine Educator for the BC Centre for Disease Control

Ian Roe Content Strategist, BC Centre for Disease Control

This session will highlight common immunization related questions and concerns health care providers encounter from their clients. A focus on effective immunization communication principles and evidence to refute selected immunization myths will be presented. Immunization resources for health care providers will be highlighted. I Boost Immunity (IBI) is an online learning and sharing platform for vaccination built on the premise that rewarding individual knowledge with a practical outcome can save lives. The website uses quizzes, articles and stories to raise local literacy around immunization in a fun and engaging way, and pairs it with a global reward: vaccines for kids through UNICEF.
