Children receiving their COVID-19 vaccine or booster at the Tippecanoe County Health Department vaccination site, 1950 S. 18th Street, Lafayette, Indiana will receive a special SuperPower Pack Vaccine while supplies last through a partnership between Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine’s League of VetaHumanz and the Tippecanoe County Department of Health. The League of VetaHumanz (www.VetaHumanz.org) is a league of veterinary superheroes where vets around the world provide access and support to underprivileged young people. VetaHumanz uses its superpowers to improve health literacy and reduce health disparities in humans and their animals. Each SuperPower Vaccine Pack contains a children’s book where children learn all about vaccines in humans and animals, a special superhero face mask, and collectible cards. Adults accompanying children will also receive Limited Edition League of VetaHumanz face masks. The program is supported by a National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) program, which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). So turn on and get vaccinated today, because even superheroes need vaccines!
