About Vaccine Ambassadors
Each year over 1.5 million children under the age of five die from diseases that can be easily prevented with common vaccines. Over 90% of these children live in areas of the world where there is no routine health care or supportive medical services when a child becomes ill. Other factors such as malnutrition and unclean water place these children at even higher risk for contracting diseases. While in a weakened state it becomes more difficult for their bodies to fight infections, and the result can be death.
Immunizations are one of the most cost-effective, life-saving healthcare services available, and are considered a basic healthcare measure for all children. The CDC estimates that immunizations have prevented 20 million deaths in the last two decades. Despite significant advances, vaccines that are routinely offered in the United States are not readily available to all children in many parts of world.
Join us and become a Vaccine Ambassador so that all children can have access to the same life-saving healthcare measures. Vaccine Ambassadors is an affordable program that takes place in the convenience of your own pediatrician’s office.* As a Vaccine Ambassador, every time your child visits their doctor an automatic $2, or chosen amount, is collected during their visit. Your donation will be used to purchase needed vaccines and immunization services. As a result, when your child receives health care at your pediatrician’s office another child in the world will benefit as well. 100% of donations received, minus standard credit card processing fees, will go to the purchase of needed vaccines and immunization services to be used by established global immunization programs.
You don’t need to be a parent- everyone can be a part of the solution. Join us by donating at your clinic, online, or starting your own fundraiser. Unite with others around the globe so that every child has the chance to grow, play, learn, laugh, and have a healthy start at life.
