Recognizing Outstanding Contributions to Increasing Missouri’s Immunization Awareness and Vaccination Rates

February 6, 2023

Help the Missouri Immunization Coalition celebrate Black History Month (February) and Women’s History Month (March) by recognizing those individuals within your organizations who have raised vaccination awareness or who have increased vaccination rates within their communities. “The Missouri Immunization Coalition’s mission is to promote immunizations, prevent disease, and protect all Missourians. It is only fitting that we acknowledge those individuals whose work best exemplifies MIC’s mission,” said Nicole Cope, MIC’s Executive Director.

During February’s Black History Month, MIC will recognize our African American colleagues. In March, MIC will recognize our female colleagues. All nominations must include the nominee’s name, title, email address, headshot, and a brief two paragraph story on how they have contributed to increasing vaccination rates or awareness within their community. Send your nominations to Paloma Martinez Crespo, MIC’s Communications Director, at MIC will recognize these individuals throughout the months of February and March on our social media platforms.

As we celebrate Black History month in February and Women’s History month in March, let us reflect upon the contributions, struggles and accomplishments of these past pioneers. Moreover, let us recognize the additional work that must be done, and the dreams not yet fully realized.

Celebrate these two particularly important months with us. Please send your nominations today.
