Vaccines save millions of lives annually

Each Spring GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club members Advocate to Vaccinate. Shot@Life advocates across the United States speak out to increase access to vaccines for children and people around the world. This year advocates came together to urge U.S. policymakers to fund investments in global vaccine programs. 

Every year vaccines save more than four million lives. Yet every 20 seconds, a child still dies from an infectious disease that could have been prevented by a vaccine. This is unacceptable. We must protect progress made with immunizations, strengthen health systems, and ensure people everywhere have access to lifesaving vaccines for diseases like polio, measles, pneumonia, rotavirus, and COVID-19. 

What can you do? Ask Congress to fully fund FY 2024 vaccination programs that save lives. and serve U.S. interests. Send an email to your US senator and US representative. 

The Wewahitchka Woman’s Club meetings are the second Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. CT at the Wewahitchka Senior Citizens Building. Join us to learn more about how you can be a part of an 87-year-old club and as a volunteer, can make a positive difference in the community. Contact us at gfwcwewawomansclub@gmail.com.
