As a continuation of the Grow Great series, this video delivers key messages about routine immunizations. In this video you will learn the importance of sticking to recommended schedules of routine immunization, including possible consequences of missing routine visits such as:
-falling off the growth curve due to vitamin A deficiency
-getting a parasite that causes weight loss
-diarrhea and stunted growth
-illnesses/diseases that could be prevented by regular vaccination
The Digital Medic team worked with the Grow Great campaign in South Africa to develop the script, art, animation and food photography for this video.
The Grow Great campaign is a national movement to end stunting in South Africa by 2030. The Grow Great educational series promotes healthy behaviors among caregivers during the most important development period in a child’s life: the first 1,000 days (conception – 2 years old).
