We hope you'll join us for the 13th Annual Community Immunity Spring Luncheon benefiting The Immunization Partnership. Each year, we host this special event to focus community leaders on the importance of immunization issues, to raise funds to support and embolden our programs, and to honor those who have advanced immunizations and increased immunization rates. As vaccines remain at the forefront of the public health conversation amid this pivotal time in history, we are vigilant in leading the charge to educate and advocate around the life-saving capacity of all vaccines, including the COVID-19 vaccine. Our vision to create a community free from vaccine-preventable diseases has never been more important.
We are honored to recognize Jason V. Terk, MD, with the Ralph D. Feigin, MD Award for Excellence and H-E-B with the John R. Boettiger, Jr. Award for Community Partnership. In addition, we are excited to honor Venus Ginés, MA, CHWI, with the inaugural Community Immunization Champion Award.
Your support of this event will positively impact The Immunization Partnership’s efforts to reduce vaccine-preventable diseases through timely immunizations.
