Eldercare Locator’s Home for the Holidays Campaign

The campaign features a brochure and vaccine fact sheet, which highlight the important and potentially life-saving role vaccines play in helping older adults stay healthy and connected to local, community-based resources. Organizations can customize and use these materials to participate in the Home for the Holidays campaign and share information about their own resources for vaccinations.
