IAC Express: Weekly immunization news and information
Issue 1095: December 18, 2013

Top Stories

We are moved by your support!

After 20 years at the corner of Selby and Snelling in St. Paul, Minnesota, our building is being razed to make way for redevelopment. As a result, we have a six-month window to find new office space for carrying on our work supporting the nation’s immunization healthcare professionals.

Donate to the Immunization Action Coalition!
And that’s where we hope you come in. We need to raise $50,000 to offset the costs of moving and the increased rents we are facing. We have been so fortunate to have had no raise in our rent for the last ten years, resulting in savings that we have converted into expanded services and products.

Simply visit www.immunize.org/support and select an amount. A contribution of $50, $100, or $250 would be of tremendous help but, of course, any amount is deeply appreciated.

Rest assured that while we are moving OUT, we will also be moving UP with continuing development of powerful resources aimed at increasing immunization rates across the age span.

Contributions to IAC, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Ways to Donate
  • Donate online using a credit card
  • Donate by fax or mail by printing a contribution form and following instructions on the form
  • Recognize someone by making an honorary or memorial gift. It is easy to do. The "Comments" section found toward the bottom of the shopping cart checkout page lists the information you need to provide about the person you are honoring. (Note: It may take a few seconds for the "Comments" section to appear—please be patient.)
Finally, we want to make sure that each of our dear IAC Express subscribers knows how committed we are to assisting the invaluable work you do in saving and improving lives through the delivery of vaccines.

If there is ever anything IAC can do for you, please let us know without hesitation.

Deborah L. Wexler, MD, Executive Director
and the entire staff of the Immunization Action Coalition
