Stories have power. In Colorado, our low immunization rates put vulnerable community members—including infants too young to be fully immunized and seniors with less robust immune systems—at risk for dangerous, and sometimes deadly, diseases. By gathering stories from people like you, we can help the broader Colorado community see why high vaccination rates are important for the health and safety of everyone in our state.
There are many ways your personal story can influence change. Whether it convinces a friend to vaccinate their newborn, or provides support for others with sad or difficult experiences of loss or injury, your experiences are important to share. If you are interested, please let us know here.
Remember that a story can include just a few lines you share in writing or a whole experience you would like to tell publicly. We are happy to work with you in any way you wish to make sure we use your voice effectively and respectfully. We invite and encourage you to share your story and speak up for healthy communities.
