Help IAC make vaccination go viral on social media!

The Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) has been addressing and defusing the fears that fuel the antivaccine movement, showcasing stories of vaccine-preventable disease, and recognizing the science that has saved millions of lives through vaccination for 30 years. 

Today, the success of vaccination in preventing deadly diseases is threatened by a small but vocal number of individuals opposed to vaccination. IAC is increasing our social media presence and we would appreciate your help amplifying our efforts to help allay concerns and widen understanding of the importance of vaccination.

  

Simply take the extra step to “Like” the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube—and share IAC posts and tweets to spread the word. "Share" buttons with pre-written posts can now be found on many of our web pages and at the top of all of our most recent online IAC Express issues for quick and convenient sharing. 

We know it’s a few extra clicks—but those clicks matter. Every follower extends the reach of our message and our ability to support better public health through vaccination.
