NOTE: Many Toolkit resources are publications, used with permission, from national immunization partners, including the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In order to assure that the Toolkit contains the most current versions of the publications, we have provided these resources as links to the documents or web pages on their home website, rather than as PDFs. These links will take you to the partner's website, and away from the DHHS website, so you will need to use your browser's Back Arrow button to return to the Toolkit on the DHHS website.
