Apply for immunization clinic grant
The Texas Medical Association’s Be Wise — Immunize program is currently accepting grant applications for local vaccination events in 2013. The program will offer Local Impact Grants for clinics that target children, adolescents, or adults. Grants of $500 to $1,500 are available to physicians, medical students, local TMA Alliance chapters, and county medical societies.
Funds can be used for a new shot clinic or an expanded event. Grant applications are due March 1. Awardees have up to 12 months to use the funds.
To help plan your free or low-cost vaccination event, check out the Be Wise — Immunize Quick Start Manual: A Step-by-Step Vaccination Outreach Guide and Be Wise Event Ideas.

Be Wise — Immunize is a joint initiative led by TMA physicians and the TMA Alliance. Funding for Be Wise — Immunize is provided by the TMA Foundation thanks to generous support from H-E-B, and gifts from physicians and their families.
