SRHD Works to Bring Health Equity to Vaccination Messaging

April 17, 2019

Recognizing the need to bring health messaging to the community in various languages, SRHD Immunization Assessment & Promotion program has developed culturally competent, ethnically diverse fliers and posters in multiple languages that promote routine childhood immunizations. These posters have been delivered to multiple locations throughout Spokane, including WIC offices, community centers, community health clinics, and ethnic grocers. Several local organizations have partnered with SRHD on this effort, including Providence, MultiCare, CHAS, World Relief, and Walgreens.

Posters are available in English, Russian, Ukrainian, Marshallese, Chinese, Spanish and other languages. They can be printed from the SRHD website:

English, Russian and Ukranian
English, Spanish and Marshallese

Or contact Jeannie Schueman to have color copies mailed to your clinic.
