Support Local Events
ECBT recognizes the vital importance of initiatives that strive to reduce the number of vaccine-preventable deaths in all age groups. We partner closely with numerous organizations that share our goal of protecting all children from vaccine preventable diseases.
There are many initiatives that you can become involved in to support local immunization efforts. Your health department, coalition or department of education may wish to hold events in schools and day care centers including seasonal flu awareness campaigns. Back to school awareness programs help get the message out that all children should be up-to-date on their immunizations prior to the first day of classes each year and back to school clinics help to get the children the shots they need to meet the school requirements for admission. Assisted living, adult day care, long term care, nursing homes, hospice care, and home care settings all benefit when you offer your expertise.
To get more involved in supporting local community events, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to connect you with our local contacts who coordinate these types of efforts.
In addition, by indicating your willingness to become an ECBT Advocate we will call upon you when we learn about events in your area as well as immunization issues that need to be addressed at your local level.
