What are Shot@Life Champions?
Shot@Life Champions represent our strongest supporters across the nation— individuals who are dedicating their voice, time, and support to stand up for childhood in developing countries. Champions represent a diverse group of moms, dads, students, and anyone who believes in the importance of vaccines. Champions receive training in media, advocacy, and event planning to become effective ambassadors for Shot@Life. Champions are leading a grassroots movement by teaching their community about the importance of global vaccines, organizing events to raise funds for United Nations programs on the ground, and meeting with their members of congress to encourage them to expand access to vaccines globally.

Congratulations on being selected to help spread the word about the importance of global vaccinations and how we all have a role to play to give children a Shot@Life. You are about to embark on perhaps what will be one of the most significant adventures of your lifetime. Thank you for stepping away from your own busy and important jobs to spend time learning more about this work.

Congress is changing too! There are over 90 brand new Members of the House and Senate. What does this buzz in Washington mean for you?
