Support vaccinations

School is back in session this month for thousands of children. Many have been poked and prodded with life-saving vaccines just to gain access to the public school system in the United States. Sadly, millions of children just a hop, skip and a jump away are dying because they’ve lacked their precious poke. These children die from easily preventable diseases that our children are protected from. Does this make sense?

How is this equality, especially among babies and children? If only there was a way to save these millions of children from dying. Oh, but there is!

Through the GAVI Alliance, vaccines can reach the poorest children in need and drastically increase immunization rates, saving over 5 million children’s lives. All we need is to urge state representatives to pass HR 688 in support of the work of the GAVI Alliance so no more children will die from these easily preventable diseases.
