This week, @Vaccines is curated by Paula Kiger, a Shot@Life Champion Leader, blogger and mother of two from Tallahassee, Florida.  Paula is attending the annual Shot@Life Champion Summit taking place in Washington, D.C. from February 27th until March 1st.

The annual Summit brings together volunteers from across the U.S. to learn about and advocate for global childhood immunisations.  Attendees will hear from Gavi, UNICEF, the CDC as well as polio survivors and Washington insiders. Those in attendance will also have the opportunity to meet with representatives on Capitol Hill to ask them to support full funding for immunization at home and abroad.

Paula has promised to share important statistics, inspiring quotes and the passion that all Shot@Life Champions have for children around the world. So, if you are not in D.C. this week, make sure to tune in to @Vaccines for Paula’s updates.
