The million dollar question

May 16, 2013 BY Peter Yeo

What would you do with a million dollars? What about $350 million? Last year, that’s how much Congress agreed to spend on global vaccines, and to put it in perspective, that’s only 0.01% of the entire U.S. federal budget. This money helps save the lives of 2.5 million children every year. That’s money well spent. 

Right now, Congress is busy deciding how much money the U.S. government will spend next year – including how much will be spent to provide life-saving immunizations to children in developing countries. 

We need your help to email Congress and ask them to help save the lives of millions of children by fully funding U.S. global vaccination and immunization programs.  

We must tell our elected officials we care about giving every child, no matter where they live, a shot at a healthy life. Your voice matters and you can help ensure that all children have access to the vaccines that they need simply by sending an email to your representative right now.

Tell your member of Congress to support funding for global vaccines in the current budget discussions.  

Thank you for taking action.
