Help take down COVID-zilla

This fun and engaging journey provides children and youth the opportunity to defend their health and those around them by understanding the importance of protecting themselves against the COVID-19 beast.

Throughout this battle, players build protection for their character through important actions such as immunization, diligent hand washing, wearing a mask and social distancing.

This parent guide offers important talking points to discuss with your child why these actions are important, and what they can continue to do to ensure their character is fully protected against COVID-19.

This interactive experience gives both children and adults information and resources to provide an understanding of the immunization experience, as well as the resources to help them make the battle a little easier, while protecting the health and wellbeing of others around them.

If you have questions or want more information on COVID-19 immunization for your child, review our videos, expert advice and other helpful resources. You can also learn more about Commitment to Comfort, a program that helps lessen pain and discomfort.

Join us on this journey as we work together to help win this COVID-19 battle once and for all! Let’s begin!
