A movement to protect children worldwide by providing life-saving vaccines where they are most needed.
Over the last two decades we have made major strides in the fight to end polio – reducing cases worldwide by 99%. Polio is now endemic in just three countries – Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan. But we need your help to finish the last mile in the race to end the disease. Until eradicated, polio anywhere is a threat to children everywhere.Here is the truth. You don’t have to be a world leader to make a difference. You can be a champion in the global effort to eradicate polio by telling your elected officials to help.TAKE ACTION Tell your Member of Congress that NO CHILD should be crippled by an easily preventable disease like polio. The United States has been a long time partner of the global effort to end this disease and we need to continue the momentum to make polio history.
I Support U.S. Funding for Global Health and Vaccines
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am a supporter of the Shot@Life campaign. We believe that vaccines are one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries.As your constituent, I hope you too can join us in the fight to save lives through providing vaccines and immunizations. Please support full funding for critical programs like the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), and make our vaccination programs a priority within the U.S. foreign aid budget.Despite significant progress, one in five children still lack access to life-saving immunizations, putting them at risk for preventable diseases and death. The impact of immunization is powerful. With continued support from Congress, we can help save the life of a child every 20 seconds by providing vaccines to children in developing countries.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
