We’re living in some unusual times, but life keeps marching on. Your kids are still growing, they still need you to protect their health, and you still love them.
Stand up for them — and for all your community — and keep up with their vaccinations. Childhood immunization is one of the most significant public health achievements of the last century. And it’s one the most powerful way to protect those you love. When we all do our part, we keep kids safe from what used to be devestating diseases like measles, diptheria, polio, and more.
Take a stand. Vax for Love.
Some things are worth taking a stand for. You friends. Your hometown. Your loved ones. And especially kids. Sometimes that takes strength, sometimes it just takes love. Take a stand for the people and the places you love: get your kids vaccinated today.
Vaccines are safe, proven and effective. They have saved millions of lives worldwide for centuries, starting with the smallpox vaccine in the 1700s.
Vaccines are based on the latest research and science by the CDC and the FDA.
Many vaccine-preventable diseases can be spread by air – including chicken pox, diphtheria, influenza, measles, mumps, pertussis, polio, pneumococcal pneumonia and rubella.
