2009 Ancient City Kids Day

JAM (Junior Alliance of Medicine)
participates in
Ancient City Kids Day

Ancient City Kids Day was a huge success this past Saturday. Thanks to all those who showed up to help!

We brought a great display board with a message to kids to "Ask For it" --immunizations, that is. We included info from the CDC web site and the American Lung Association about seasonal & H1N1 flu. We had a great turnout & gave away glow-in-the-dark skeletons, gumball "eyeballs", spider rings, stickers, & placed a lot of tattoos on little hands & faces.

The issue of vaccinations is on the 2009 FMA (Florida Medical Association) legislative agenda.
We must oppose any weakening of the requirements for childhood vaccinations in Florida. It protects all of us and young people are the target population for H1N1 flu!
