Sign up to join the AAP Shot@Life in-office program
As a founding partner of the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign, the Academy mobilizes pediatric leaders to support and accelerate vaccine access goals. Working with Shot@Life provides pediatricians the opportunity to talk to the public and the U.S. government about the critical role of vaccines in saving and improving the lives of children around the world. The American Academy of Pediatrics spreads the message that all kids deserve a shot at life and offers resources to help pediatricians educate about the importance of international vaccine-prevention programs. The Academy provides accurate technical health information to the campaign and seeks to ensure all children have access to vaccines.
The Academy and Shot@Life believe there is an opportunity to educate Americans about global vaccines at a critical moment: in the pediatrician’s office while getting their children vaccinated. While we understand the constraints – time and others – during in-office interactions with moms and kids, we hope to provide pediatricians and their staff tools to educate families without a big investment in time or resources.
When you sign up to take part in this in-office program, we will send your practice a toolkit with resources to help you promote global vaccines, including posters, information cards and Shot@Life gear.
PLEASE NOTE: if you have more than one practice site, please enter the additional address and contact information in questions 5 and 6.
