To thank our sponsors and supporters, Immunize Colorado will host the much-anticipated biennial Shots Offer Unrivaled Protection (S.O.U.P!) fundraising and recognition event Thursday, October 13, 2022, from 6-9 p.m. at Space Gallery in Denver. The evening celebration will raise funds and awareness for immunization while we treat guests to gourmet soup samples and honor Colorado’s top immunization champions.
As Colorado’s only statewide independent 501c(3) nonprofit organization committed to keeping Coloradans healthy through immunization, Immunize Colorado elevates the essential role vaccines play in preventing illness and promoting health for all of Colorado; we do this by building awareness for vaccines, educating health care providers, and advocating for policies that protect Coloradans with the goal of increasing vaccination rates.
Vaccines Save Lives
Vaccines avert over $400 million in hospitalization charges in Colorado each year.
Vaccines prevent over 8,600 hospitalizations among Colorado children each year.
Vaccines prevent 4 - 5 million deaths worldwide each year.
In the U.S., vaccines protect people of all ages against 17 dangerous or deadly diseases.
Supporting Vaccines For All
We believe that all groups—regardless of race, ethnicity, ability, income or other factor—deserve to have accurate information about vaccines, and reliable access to them.
