Flu season hit Texas hard this year. Help keep your community healthy next flu season by hosting a vaccination clinic. Money is available. Apply now for a grant from TMA's Be Wise — ImmunizeSM to cover the cost for your flu shot clinic or other vaccination event.
TMA is accepting applications until March 1 for Be Wise local impact grants of up to $2,000. Physicians, medical students, TMA Alliance chapters, and county medical societies can use the funds for free or low-cost shot clinics for children, adolescents, or adults. Any recommended vaccination qualifies. Awardees have up to 12 months to use the funds.
