Get Involved


As a pediatrician, you can play an important role in issues around global immunizations.

“Pediatricians should support global immunization to reduce the risk of disease, disability, and death from vaccine-preventable diseases in children living in other countries as well as reducing the risk that these infectious agents will be imported back to the United States and cause outbreaks.”
-- Dr. Walter Orenstein, MD, FAAP
