Key Messages:

  • Vaccinations are safe and will protect you from diseases that can kill you.
  • All children have the right to a ‘Road to Health’ card that tells them what vaccinations they have received and which ones they still need.
  • The vaccinations you need are free and are provided by the government.
  • There is a lot of misinformation about vaccinations.  Make sure you get the right information by talking to a doctor, nurse, or clinician.

Make Your Move: Ask your parent or guardian to show you your ‘Road to Health’ card.  See which vaccinations you have received, when you got them and which ones you still need.

Forwards practise shots on goal so they can score in most situations. Vaccinations are shots that save lives; find out which vaccinations you and your family have already received and which ones you still need.
Didier Drogba

Health Fact: About 2.5 million children under the age of five die each year from diseases that can be prevented by having the right vaccinations.
