Apply for a TMA Be Wise — ImmunizeSM Local Impact Grant to jumpstart your immunization event. Grant proposals are due March 1, and again on Oct. 1. This new program aims to increase vaccinations given through Be Wise — Immunize. Grants of $500 to $1,500 are available to county medical societies (CMSs), physician practices, TMA Alliance chapters, medical student chapters, and TMA member-physician practices/clinics.
Grants can fund new or expanded shot clinics, or coalition activity to immunize underserved and uninsured children, adolescents, and/or adults. If you need to plan your next vaccination event, check out the Be Wise — Immunize Quick Start Manual: A Step-by-Step Vaccination Outreach Guide. To find out more, contact Tammy Wishard, TMA’s outreach coordinator, at (512) 370-1470.
Be Wise — Immunize is funded through generous grants from TMA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Association, thanks to major support from H-E-B and TMF Health Quality Institute. To keep the program growing, you can make a donation to TMAF.
