Our History

Vaccines are safe and effective and save millions of lives each year. They are among the best tools the world has to keep children healthy and protect them from deadly and debilitating diseases. The problem? Despite years of progress, many people around the world still lack access to lifesaving vaccines and millions of children countries continue to die from preventable diseases. 

In order to help its United Nations partners reach these children, the United Nations Foundation launched the Shot@Life campaign in 2012. A U.S. advocacy campaign, Shot@Life raises awareness about global vaccine inequity, advocates to ensure strong U.S. government investment in global immunization programs, and partners to mobilize additional support and resources for the on-the-ground work of our UN partners. We do all this to ensure everyone in the world has access to lifesaving vaccines and all children have a SHOT AT LIFE.

We’ve accomplished a lot since 2012…

4k+ Americans trained to become global vaccine equity advocates
5.7b+ invested by U.S. government in global vaccine programs
120m+ vaccines provided to children thanks to our private partners and donors

    But, so long as anyone lacks access to vaccines, our job is not done.

    It takes a village to give more of the world’s people access to vaccines and Shot@Life is fortunate to have wonderful partners. Our UN partners do the on-the-ground work of getting vaccines to people all around the world. U.S. membership organizations partner in support of our grassroots advocacy program. Our funding partners help make the global immunization and our U.S. advocacy work possible. And we all, together, raise awareness about global vaccine inequity and the lifesaving power of vaccines.
