August National Immunization Awareness Month

Women In Government Foundation Logo
Dear PSA Director,

Women In Government is a national, non-profit, non-partisan organization of women state legislators providing leadership opportunities, networking, expert forums, and educational resources for over 25 years on policy issues such as healthcare, education, energy, the environment, transportation, and more.

Women In Government hosted its 18th Annual Western Regional Conference in Denver, Colorado and asked women state legislators from across the region to record public service announcements to raise awareness about the importance of adolescent vaccinations.

Many teens are not receiving scheduled vaccinations or are not receiving all recommended vaccines. Vaccine-preventable diseases can devastate even the healthiest of teens. For instance, bacterial meningitis kills 10 to 14 percent of all infected adolescents.

August is National Immunization Awareness Month, and as we gear up for the new school year, the PSAs discuss why adolescent vaccines are important for adolescent health and overall family health.

Please support us in our continued efforts to raise awareness about the importance of adolescent vaccinations by airing this PSA. To learn more, visit www.womeningovernment.org

Thank you in advance for your consideration.
