Shot@Life Campaign

The Campaign

The United Nations Foundation’s new Shot@Life campaign focuses on educating, connecting and empowering Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save children’s lives in developing countries. The campaign, which seeks to mobilize the US public, members of Congress, and civil society partners, emphasizes that a child’s life can be saved every 20 seconds by expanding access to vaccines.  The United Nations Foundation's Shot@Life campaign aims to decrease vaccine-preventable childhood deaths and give children a shot at a healthy life.

The AAP and Shot@Life

The American Academy of Pediatrics is a founding partner in the Shot@Life campaign. As an active partner, the Academy spreads the message that all kids deserve a shot at life and offers resources to help pediatricians educate patients, parents, and the community on the importance of international vaccine access. The Academy provides accurate technical health information to the campaign and seeks to make sure all children have access to vaccines.
