Where To Look for Shot-by-Shot Stories

Share this Shot by Shot flyer with people who may be interested in telling their story. Don’t know anyone with a vaccine-preventable disease story? Here are some places to find people with stories to share:

  • Older Generation: Ask someone from an older generation, such as parents or grandparents. Try contacting a local senior center or a community group like the Elks or Shriners.
  • Support Groups: Contact a local support or survivor’s group. Some groups already share stories online. Ask if they’d like to share with Shot by Shot, too. See the links page for group contacts.
  • Doctors and Nurses: Ask a doctor or nurse to tell you about diseases they’ve seen recently or in the past. Some older practitioners have seen many cases of vaccine-preventable diseases and have stories to tell. Ask if they know someone now who they could refer to you. (Give your contact information so their patient can get in touch with you. Or, see if the medical professional wants to conduct the interview or if the patient wants to tell his/her own story.)
  • Film Students: Want help with videotaping? Try contacting your local college see if there are film students who might want to help the effort.
