2017 MT TeenVax Challenge: Now Open!
The 2017 MT TeenVax Challenge is part of a multi-year campaign that focuses on increasing awareness about the importance of teen vaccines. The Challenge is in partnership with the Montana Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Montana Academy of Family Physicians and the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Montana Care Van program.
This Challenge is an opportunity for parents/guardians of 11-17 year olds to enter their teen’s name into a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card if they have received at least 1 Tdap, 1 MCV4, and 1 HPV vaccine (at any time). Only one entry per teen. At least one gift card per county will be given away.
If your teen has not received these vaccines, consider catching them up on these teen vaccines.
The deadline to enter is October 31, 2017. Winners will be announced in November 2017.
Materials to display information about the Challenge will be mailed to all Vaccines for Children providers at the end of June. The Challenge material is also available for download.
