PKIDs public service announcements on vaccines

10 Dec

Parents of Kids with Infectious Diseases has produced a series of public service announcements on vaccination for various diseases. These are well done and worth sharing with people who are questioning the value of vaccination.

Below are the long versions (about 3 minutes each). They have shorter versions (60s and 30s) on their YouTube channel. They also have these on their website for download.


Hepatitis B



Pneumococcal disease



Whooping Cough (pertussis)

For any who wish to comment that this has nothing to do with autism, I agree. Unfortunately, the autism community is one of the biggest sources of misinformation about vaccines and vaccine preventable diseases. If I can help PKIDs a bit with this post, I see that as a good thing.

    Hi Sullivan –

    Videos are bleeding into the right hand menu, but only a little bit. IE7.

    Thanks pD.

    Usually I let those go as I tend to make things worse when I try to fix them. This time, it appears to be looking better.

    Off topic I’ll watch all the videos, but did you read this article Sullivan?

    Wow! One family did not vaccinate thinking it was better for their children, until both of their children ended up in the hospital.

    What was scary was the family whose child died had a doctor who did not believe in vaccines. I am wondering if they confronted that doctor after the funeral (which was delayed because the younger sibling was also hospitalized with the same disease).

    Thanks so much for posting. Very kind. Hope the videos provide a perspective for parents to consider as they choose (or don’t choose) immunization for their children – or themselves!
