Date:11/10/2008

ers through its "Immunization Sundays" program that provides pastors, church officials and parishioners with an immunization toolkit and religious sermons focusing on the importance of vaccines. The toolkit includes resources, flyers, information, scriptural references and recommendations for congregational activities and events.

"Our children's health is top of mind and has always been a priority for COSHAR's National Health Ministry Network and the community organizations we support," said Dr. Ottey. "The church has become an avenue to address health concerns, and Immunization Sundays has proven to be an effective way to disseminate important vaccination information to parents, grandparents, and other caregivers. We look forward to continuing to spread the message of prevention through vaccination. The COSHAR Foundation's Health Advisory Board asks that members of our network to encourage their congregations and communities to get the flu vaccine in an effort to protect themselves and their families."

To date, more than 11,000 toolkits have been distributed and more than 8,200 Immunization Sunday events have been held across the United States.
