Vaccine Victory helps students to better understand the purpose and science behind COVID-19 vaccines. The friendly comic-style stories help teachers and parents initiate discussions on how vaccines protect you from contracting the virus and in doing so protect others. An overview of how vaccines are developed, tested, and determined safe for human use is a perfect tool to better educate in the simplest of terms the importance of vaccines in stopping the spread of coronavirus.
