Vax Maine Kids

When Maine families have vaccination questions, they turn to Vax Maine Kids. We are doctors, nurses, public health advocates, policy makers – and parents. We know when parents get real facts about vaccines, they get their kids vaccinated. But with so much conflicting information out there, it’s hard to know whom to trust.

Maine parents can trust Vax Maine Kids for local, accurate, evidence-based vaccination information, vaccine news, and helpful vaccine resources.

Vax Maine Kids also connects you with other Maine parents trying to make the right choices for their kids.

Leading into National Immunization Awareness Month, Vax Maine Kids, the MaineHealth Childhood Immunizations Program, and Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center will host Maine’s first showing of the film, “Invisible Threat” — an educational documentary written, filmed, and edited by high school broadcast journalists from Carlsbad, California on the controversy surrounding immunizations. The film explores some of the societal risks associated with under-vaccinating. Click here for more information about our screening.
