PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE
IN PROTECTING YOUR HEALTH,
YOUR FAMILY AND COMMUNITY
It's time to take a stand for public health and guarantee
access to life-saving immunizations for all Oklahomans. The
Oklahoma Alliance for Healthy Families is committed to
providing education, access and coordinated partnership
between providers and policy makers.
Promote healthy communities where families can live, work and learn without fear of exposure to preventable diseases.
Provide evidence-based resources families need to make informed choices. Dispel common myths that threaten the health and safety of all Oklahoma families.
Give a voice to immuno-compromised children and those whose lives are at risk when those who are eligible to be immunized are not.
