THINK OF ALL THE TIMES YOU'VE TURNED TO IAC FOR HELP--NOW, IAC IS TURNING TO YOU

In 2003 IAC EXPRESS came to its subscribers, asking them for their financial support to continue IAC's work. Your generous response helped us update our websites, produce and mail our professional periodicals, and develop new projects. Now at the end of 2004, we hope you will once again extend your generosity to IAC.

Since IAC began operating 14 years ago, our staff has had thousands of face-to-face, phone, and email conversations with members of the immunization and viral hepatitis communities. You've told us what you need from us, and we've had the privilege of responding by providing you with a phenomenal range of information:

  • practical staff- and patient-education materials you can download and print
  • links to current research on immunization and hepatitis issues, accessible on our four websites
  • up-to-the-minute news, including changes in immunization recommendations made by the federal government and professional societies, via our two email newsletters
  • extension of immunization information to hundreds of thousands of practitioners through our three major periodicals
  • phone consultations with you about your immunization scheduling and administration questions

Funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and corporate sponsors has helped our efficient, hardworking staff of eleven meet your diverse information needs. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO HELP US CONTINUE TO HELP YOU.

We will be cheered on by a contribution of any amount, but your tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $75, or more will help us substantially.

WE THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!
The eleven of us who staff IAC extend our thanks to you, our subscribers, readers, email correspondents, order placers, phone friends, and contributors. Figuring out how to meet your needs for reliable immunization and viral hepatitis information has been and continues to be stimulating, challenging, and deeply rewarding. We know we can depend on your generosity to support us in this important work.

FEDERAL AND MILITARY EMPLOYEES: HELP IAC BY USING AGENCY CODE 0233 WHEN YOU MAKE YOUR COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION

Federal and military employees have an easy, hassle-free option for contributing to IAC--the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Each fall, federal and military employees are allowed to make contributions to charities of their choice through CFC. More than 1.3 million federal and military employees participated in the 2003 campaign, contributing $249.2 million.

By filling out a CFC pledge card (available through your local campaign volunteers), you can contribute to IAC by cash, check, or payroll deduction. If you would like to contribute to us, please enter our four-digit agency code, 0233, and a dollar amount on your 2004 CFC pledge card. To our knowledge, IAC is the only immunization-specific organization approved to receive contributions through CFC.

We would like to thank each of you personally for your contribution; to do that, we need you to check off the boxes on the pledge card that permit CFC to send us your name and contact information.

For more information about CFC, go to: http://www.opm.gov/cfc
