What is a Shot@Life Champion?


Who are Shot@Life Champions?

Shot@Life Champions represent our strongest supporters across the nation and the world — individuals who are dedicating their voice, time, and support to stand up for children in developing countries. Champions represent a diverse group of parents, students, medical professionals, activists and anyone who believes in the importance of global childhood immunizations.

What do Shot@Life Champions do?

Shot@Life Champions help move the policy needle to ensure that the U.S. Government continues to fund global childhood immunization programs. They also fundraise to support the work of the UN and our partners to support global immunizations programs. These programs protect children in developing countries from the deadly and debilitating effects of polio, measles, pneumonia, and rotavirus. Since Shot@Life launched in 2012, our Champions have held more than 2,400 Congressional meetings, sent 230,000 letters to members of Congress, doubled the annual U.S. government investment from fiscal year 2013 to fiscal year 2020, and helped protect a total $5.17B in U.S. government funding. Champions receive training to help them build relationships with their members of Congress, use the media to advocate, fundraise for vaccines, and maximize the impact of events. Champions also have exclusive access to UN Foundation events and are the first to receive reports and information from the UN and our vaccine partners.
