RIZE Action Month

Rise to Immunize® (RIZE) Action Month is around the corner! RIZE Action Month is our campaign’s annual observance held in August in conjunction with National Immunization Awareness Month. The observance aims to mobilize campaign participants to take action to advance our goal of 30 million vaccines administered by 2027 through comprehensive and equitable vaccine initiatives. This year the observance will support participating AMGA members in engaging specialty providers in improving routine adult immunizations.
 

To “take action,” follow the steps below:

1. Save the Date. Select a date and time to assemble your immunization team for a 30- to 60- minute event (in-person or virtually) during the month of August. Use the Staff Invitation Template to communicate event details and invite your team.

2. RSVP to RIZE. Let us know that your organization will be taking action.

3. Review the Participation Guide (coming soon). Consult this document for tips on planning and implementing a RIZE Action Month event – including identifying a leader, selecting a space or platform (for virtual events), and arranging for food and drink.

4. Host the Event!

  • Discuss the content together as a team, using the PowerPoint (coming soon), which features talking points and a discussion guide.
  • Recognize a specialty provider using the Recognition Template.
