Valuing Vaccinations Across Generations is an awareness campaign launched by Generations United in partnership with The Gerontological Society of America and the American Academy of Pediatrics. This campaign bridges the importance of immunizations within segmented groups into an intergenerational conversation within families and among generations. It is an international effort that promotes vaccinations through a lifespan approach by providing tools and resources to encourage intergenerational conversations. Beginning in the United States, the campaign expanded to two other countries in late 2016. Generations United is working with the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute on Gerontology in Japan and the University of Granada in Spain to lead the work in their countries. Plans are in development for further expansion.


Generations United’s unique perspective advocates for vaccinations as a part of the commitment of caring between generations. Check out the tools and resources below to encourage intergenerational conversations about the importance of immunizations. Get everyone vaccinated today and wear your bandage of honor!


Generations United will engage partners in the United States and internationally. We are pleased to partner with The Gerontological Society of America and the American Academy of Pediatrics, which will provide expert content and avenues for distribution. Additional partners are expected to join the campaign this year so stay tuned!
