In the face of persistent vaccine hesitancy, more than ever, medicine needs its soldiers to promote the safety, efficacy, and importance of vaccinations.
You can receive help with a grant from the Texas Medical Association Foundation as part of Vaccines Defend What Matters, TMA’s multimedia public health education and advocacy effort to increase vaccination rates in Texas.
Applications are now open through March 1 for the first round of the 2023 Local Impact Grants. These grants award up to $3,500 to fund vaccination activities, community outreach events, and vaccine education. Applicants who focus on Texas counties with low immunization rates and high rates of conscientious exemptions will receive priority funding.
TMA member physicians, county medical societies, TMA Alliance chapters, and medical student chapters are eligible. More information and instructions on how to apply via TMAF’s grant and award portal can be found on TMAF's Local Impact Grants webpage. There you can also see a complete list of the 2022 grant recipients, whose projects span a wide range of vaccine educational events and vaccine clinics across the state.
