You can receive up to $2,500 for a local vaccination event. TMA's Be Wise - ImmunizeSM offers Local Impact Grants for shot clinics that target children, adolescents, or adults. Eligible applicants are physicians, medical students, TMA Alliance chapters, and county medical societies. Grant proposals are accepted on March 1, July 1, and Nov. 1. TMA recommends you apply at least four to six months in advance of your shot clinic.
Be Wise - Immunize is a joint initiative led by TMA physicians and medical students, and the TMA Alliance. It is funded by TMA Foundation in 2016 thanks to major gifts from H-E-B and TMF Health Quality Institute, along with generous contributions from physicians and their families.
