Every child deserves a shot at a healthy life, no matter where they live.

Why we care: Infectious diseases kill more than 1.5 million children yearly.

How we’re solving this: Vaccinating 10,000 children against measles.

Shot@Life delivers life-saving vaccines through our partners, the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the GAVI Alliance. We deliver vaccines to countries where these diseases continue to have the most devastating effects as well as disaster-affected areas, where children as young as six months old are at serious risk for contracting and spreading infectious diseases, like measles.

The World Health Organization, along with the Philippines Government, recently launched a mass vaccination campaign to prevent outbreaks of measles. Super Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines and has left countless people displaced and living in crowded, unsanitary conditions. As the people of the Philippines recover from the effects of Haiyan, continuing Shot@Life’s effort is more important than ever.

Funding from this project will help Shot@Life and the WHO vaccinate 10,000 children in the Philippines and the worst-affected countries against measles.

Immunization has saved the lives of more children than any other medical intervention in the last 50 years. Vaccines are also one of the most cost-effective ways to save and improve the lives of children worldwide. Just $5 immunizes two children against measles.
