BACK-TO-SCHOOL CAMPAIGN

Using graphics, resources, and a bit of humor, ICAAP has collaborated with IDPH to launch a Back-to-School campaign. The Illinois Academy of Family Physicians (IAFP) is also one of our partners, emphasizing the importance of back to school well-visits.

This campaign is intended to share content and images encouraging parents and caregivers to prepare for back to school this upcoming fall. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students may be attending school in-person, virtually, or a combination. This campaign emphasizes the importance of well-visits and immunizations, including the flu vaccine for back to school, despite which option children will be participating in.
