Physicians, medical students, alliances, and county medical societies: You can receive up to $2,000 to support local vaccination events in 2013. TMA's Be Wise — ImmunizeSM will offer local impact grants for clinics that target children, adolescents, or adults.
You can use the money for a new shot clinic or an expanded event. Grant applications are due March 1. Awardees have up to 12 months to use the funds.
