Kids getting their COVID-19 vaccine or booster at the Tippecanoe County Health Department vaccination site and at Riggs Community Health Center in Lafayette, Ind., will get a special Vaccine SuperPower Pack while supplies last thanks to a partnership between the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine’s League of VetaHumanz, the Tippecanoe County Health Department, and Riggs Community Health Center.

The League of VetaHumanz is a veterinary superhero league where veterinarians across the globe provide access and support for under-resourced youth. VetaHumanz use their superpowers to improve health literacy and reduce health disparities in people and their animals. Each Vaccine SuperPower Pack has a children’s book where kids learn all about vaccines in people and animals, a special superhero face mask, and collectible cards. Adults accompanying kids will also get limited edition League of VetaHumanz face masks.

The program is supported by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) program of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

So power up and get vaccinated today because even superheroes need vaccines!
