They want more children around the world to have a shot at more “firsts” in their lives.

From first teeth to first days of school to first loves, children everywhere should be able to count on a shot at being able to celebrate the wonderful “firsts” American children may take for granted.

The ]]>Shot@Life]]> website explains why this issue, creating a healthier world, should be important to all Americans: “Expanding access to vaccines strengthens our ability to fight disease globally and keep our families healthy here at home, while improving economic stability around the world.”
