Tell Congress global vaccines are a priority.
I Support U.S. Funding for Global Health and Vaccines
Dear [Decision Maker]
As a constituent, I strongly urge you to make vaccines and immunizations a priority in global health funding. As someone who is dedicated to ensuring that life-saving vaccines are provided to the children who need them the most, I hope that you will find a way to make this a priority.
Saving lives and maximizing efficiencies in investments requires that all elements of the US funded global health programs are strong, and global vaccines are a critical piece of the entire global health portfolio. Therefore, I am asking you to support US led global health programs, specifically programs focused on saving the lives of children in developing countries by providing them with vaccines.
Vaccines are one of the most cost-effective ways to save lives, improve health and ensure long-term prosperity. However, 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 save the life of a child every 20 seconds by providing vaccines to children in developing countries.
I am a supporter of Shot@Life, a campaign that connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you on this issue.
