Shingles Awareness Toolkit

1 in 3 adults will get shingles in their lifetime but less than 30% of those eligible get vaccinated. 

Many do not know about shingles or vaccines available to help prevent it. You are a trusted resource in your community, and we need your help to spread the word. The toolkit below includes communications materials: FAQs, poster, sample social media posts, public service announcement video, and sample newsletter/website language to help you share information about shingles and the importance of prevention through vaccination.
