2020 MT TeenVax Challenge: Opens May 1st!
The 2020 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 Caring Foundation Montana's 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 care if they have received at least 1 Tdap, 1 MCV4 (MenACWY), and 1 HPV vaccine (at any time). Only one entry per a teen. One gift card per a county will be given away.
If your teen has not received these vaccines, please consider catching them up on these teen vaccines.
The deadline to enter is October 31, 2020. Winners will be announced in November 2020.
