A new campaign designed to counter the sharp decline in vaccination rates among Kentucky children launched on Aug. 20 across the state.
“Raise Your Guard, KY” urges Kentuckians to contact their physicians to get themselves and their families back on track with scheduled immunizations to prevent dozens of life-threatening diseases and illnesses. The month-long, multimedia campaign also reminds residents to get their annual flu shots starting in September to help keep their immune systems strong.
“Raise Your Guard, KY” is funded by the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky, the Kentucky Medical Association, the Kentucky Foundation for Medical Care and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield in Kentucky.
