In Vaccines: Bev Gets Her Superhero Shots, readers are introduced to Bev, a young superhero. The story explains that even superheroes can get sick from germs and sometimes our bodies need help protecting us. Enter the vaccines! They help train our bodies to defend ourselves from these germs, and in turn, protect other people, helping readers understand why these shots are so important.
A colorful schedule of all childhood vaccinations needed between birth and age 12 is included in this book. Also, answers to common questions and other important information is included in a ‘Facts’ section at the end of the book.
Our hope is that this book will help children of all ages understand how vaccines work and why they are important, even if the shots hurt a little bit! We also aim to help caregivers of newborns by providing important information and tools like the vaccination schedule.
Through science and colorful illustration, this book not only aims to empower patients and their families but is also an enjoyable and educational gift for kids who are curious to learn more about the fascinating world of medicine.
$1 from every copy of Vaccines: Bev Gets Her Superhero Shots sold will be donated to the Sabin Vaccine Institute, a nonprofit organization working toward a future free from vaccine-preventable diseases, by expanding immunization access around the world, and enabling research and innovation.
