Importance of Preventing Meningococcal Disease Handout

This engaging patient handout can be given out to help parents and patients understand the risks and symptoms of serogroup B meningococcal disease, as well as how to prevent it with the recommended vaccines for ages 11-23. The ultimate goal of this handout is to give parents and patients the information they need to make an informed decision about the serogroup B meningococcal vaccine.

Meningococcal Vaccine Information Tent

To increase awareness of the Meningitis B vaccine, AANP developed a colorful 7-inch by 5-inch trifold informational tent with a concise review of meningococcal disease, signs/symptoms and prevention through MenACWY and MenB vaccines. This tent can be printed, folded, taped and placed in the waiting room or exam rooms where patients and parents of adolescents will read it to initiate questions and conversations about meningococcal disease prevention with their health care provider.

Supported by an educational grant from Pfizer.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Handout

This two-page handout provides a summary of HPV and HPV-related cancers for patients to educate them about who should receive the HPV vaccination and when. It also offers a list of sources for reliable vaccination information. This handout can be printed and placed in waiting and exam rooms or provided to patients so that they, and parents of adolescent patients, will be encouraged to discuss HPV prevention with their health care provider.
