Stories remind us of the value of prevention in ways that data alone cannot.

Shot by Shot stories are graciously made available for you to incorporate into training, education, and awareness efforts in your own community.

Consider these ideas to use the stories.

Use Our Story Infographics!

Our growing collection of story infographics is perfect for sharing on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. The social media sharing icons are just a click away in the story gallery, where you can sort infographics by disease and age. Check-out and share our infographics to share awareness about vaccine-preventable diseases in bite-sized pieces for observances like National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) or other events throughout the year.

Reaching Out to the Public with an Event or Project?

Start with a Shot by Shot video to grab people’s attention and bring the real impact of vaccine-preventable diseases to life. Make it easy for the media to cover your event and frame it as a human interest piece by making a Shot by Shot DVD and including it in your press packet.

Real World Examples:

  • Create a DVD to show in waiting rooms
  • Show a video at a NIAM event
  • Show a video at a PTA event

Teaching a Course?

Make Shot by Shot a class project. Review the videos, read the kits, and help find and videotape people’s stories of vaccine-preventable diseases. Organize a story campaign or contest to collect more Shot by Shot stories. 

Doing Advocacy Work?

Often decisions are made with our hearts, as well as our heads. Shot by Shot stories can help you connect the heart and the mind. A Shot by Shot story can help policymakers and other officials better understand the real-life impact of vaccine-preventable diseases.  See The Hepatitis B Foundation’s Discussion Guide as one example of stories in action.
