I would not have been able to enroll my children in school without ICTC. We do not have insurance and this event allowed me to get the vaccines my children needed at a price I could afford.

I have been involved with ICTC since 1991 and have seen their mission statement at work. It is to prevent vaccine preventable disease in children. ICTC has lead a major role in the lives of 345,000 children and was an influence in preventing disease for generations of families. Tarrant County can be proud of the work that is being done year after year by this Collaboration. Our lives are better because of the perseverance of this diverse group of people.

The updated website is great. It shows how this Immunization Collaboration understands the importance of keeping current with community communications. August 2016 vaccine events preparations are underway. Up to 5000 children will receive low cost vaccines.

The ability to continue the work that ICTC does year after year with no paid staff is a testament to the board members, volunteers, and all organizations associated with ICTC who truly care about protecting Tarrant County children. Everyone who is a part of ICTC believes in the mission and will do whatever it takes to accomplish the goals. I love being part of such a wonderful and community involved organization.

ICTC has taken the concept of collaboration to new heights, by involving a very wide range of community groups and individuals who care about protecting the health of Tarrant County children. As a result, expertise, talent, volunteer hours and financial resources have been pooled together to annually provide thousands of immunizations that protect youth and eligible adults from serious and even life-threatening diseases. ICTC adopted the Texas Medical Association's Be Wise--Immunize program to amplify its educational efforts and expand volunteer resources. For nearly a quarter of a century, this group has positively impacted the health of youth and their families and is a model coalition in terms of its organization and effectiveness.

This group goes above and beyond. The volunteers work hard to provide vaccines to children and families. When I learned of all of the work that goes into one of the many vaccine events they organize, I was blown away. They continue to treat families with respect, kindness and dignity!

Works to ensure all the kids are properly immunized. We work with the Public Health staff to make the immunization clinics run smoothly. We also promote education about immunizations to doctors as well as parents. I got involved several years ago and get more involved every year because these goals are so important.

The Immunization Collaboration helps to meet the immunization needs in Fort Worth, Texas of not just the children but for adults too. With the upswing of Pertussis in our community in the recent years, this organization is helping to reduce the risk for the young babies who cannot be immunized and those who are immunosuppressed. Disease prevention at it best!
