Issue 867: May 12, 2010
1.  Please add your local, state, or national organization's name to the 317 Coalition's letter of general support for immunization funding--the deadline is next Wednesday, May 19

No government funds have been used to produce this article.

The 317 Coalition, which advocates for increased funding for the Section 317 immunization program at CDC, and of which IAC is a member, recently put out an action alert asking organizations to support two group sign-on letters. One sign-on letter is addressed to Representatives David Obey (D-WI) and Todd Tiahrt (R-KS), who are, respectively, the chairman and ranking member on the Labor, HHS, and Education Appropriations subcommittee in the U.S. House of Representatives. The other letter is addressed to Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Thad Cochran (R-MS), who are, respectively, the chairman and ranking member on the Labor, HHS, and Education Appropriations subcommittee of the U.S. Senate.

Each letter voices the 317 Coalition's unified support for increased funding for the Section 317 program within CDC, over which these particular subcommittees have funding jurisdiction. The Section 317 program provides vaccines for children and teens from working families who do not qualify for the Vaccines for Children (VFC) federal entitlement program, as well as for adults who do not otherwise have access to vaccines.

The more support the better, so please respond as soon as possible by emailing your organization's name (as well as your name) to the 317 Coalition at 317coalition@cgagroup.com Only your organization's name will appear on the letter.

Also, please feel free to forward this message to other organizations. This is a critical step in the process of securing increased federal funds--the 317 Coalition appreciates everyone's hard work and support on this issue!
