RIZE Action Month

Rise to Immunize™ (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 25 million vaccines administered by 2025.

This year’s RIZE Action Month is focused on preparing your team for respiratory season by discussing a team-based approach to closing care gaps in pneumococcal and influenza immunizations. 

To participate in RIZE Action Month, we’re encouraging you to assemble your immunization team for a 30-minute meeting (in-person or virtually) during the month of August. During the meeting, we ask that you choose two or three opportunities to support vaccination in your practice – which are included in the PowerPoint presentation – and discuss how team members can work together to drive improvement. During the meeting, you can offer team members a snack, meal, and/or coffee (on us, up to $100*!). We provide all the supporting materials for this meeting as well as suggestions for both in-person and virtual formats so you can choose what works best for your team! RSVP to let us know that your organization will participate.

2022 Overview

During our inaugural RIZE Action Month in August 2022, AMGA member groups “took action” to strengthen their vaccine recommendations. Participants gathered their immunization teams to watch the “5 Strategies to Strengthen Your Vaccine Recommendations” video and to discuss its application in their practices. Groups were provided all necessary materials for their events (see below), and up to $100 for event food and drinks.

The inaugural RIZE Action Month mobilized 28 AMGA member groups, engaging over 1,200 healthcare professionals in discussions around making strong vaccine recommendations. For more information and details about group participation, view the 2022 RIZE Action Month Wrap Report.
