Every child deserves a shot at a happy, healthy future. Immunizations play a large role in ensuring this. However, an estimated 25 million children did not receive basic vaccines in 2021, which is the highest number since 2009. Shot@Life is a grassroots advocacy campaign of the United Nations Foundation that champions global childhood immunization. The campaign rallies members of the public, Congress, businesses, and civil society partners — through public education, grassroots advocacy, and fundraising — to support and invest in global immunization programs of our UN partners, such as UNICEF, World Health Organization, and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. Shot@Life’s over 350,000 supporters and 3,000 core grassroots advocates in all 50 states strive to decrease vaccine-preventable childhood deaths and give every child a shot at life no matter where they live.
Anyone can become an advocate for childhood immunization. Nurses are some of the best advocates for the cause because they know the importance of ensuring every child gets vaccinated.
How to get involved:
Sign the petition to ask your members of Congress to support full funding for global immunization programs.
