Shot@Life

Shot@Life is a UN Foundation campaign that aims to eliminate child deaths worldwide from vaccine-preventable diseases, such as rotavirus and polio, by educating, connecting, and empowering Americans to join the movement. Vaccination is a very cost-effective way to save children’s lives, especially in developing countries where issues can be very complex.

Smallpox has been completely eradicated, and Polio is on its way, now with cases reduced by 99% worldwide. India has recently celebrated its 2nd year of being Polio-free, but more work needs to be done in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria. Measles, pneumonia, and rotavirus are just among the other vaccine-preventable diseases that Shot@Life and its partner organizations focus on.
