About Becky Payne
 
Becky Payne was the first full-time staff member at IAC in 1994 when we received a grant that enabled us to open an office and distribute our immunization education materials nationally. She and I worked long days, closely, and as dear friends. Looking back, I am convinced that without Becky, IAC would not be what it is today.
 
In 2011, Becky died unexpectedly following surgery. Her competence, professionalism, sense of humor, grace, and tireless dedication to supporting IAC operations, from the day we opened our doors and through the years and days right before her untimely death, were critical to every aspect of IACís immunization education and advocacy.

About the IAC Becky Payne Award
 
The IAC Becky Payne Award provides recognition and financial support to immunization advocates who display initiative and innovation in promoting vaccination.
 
Our goal is twofold. We believe it is important for the entire immunization community to be aware of leading individuals and organizations who have and continue to do so much heavy lifting as part of all our efforts directed at raising immunization rates. By highlighting some of these stellar performers, we can spread and deepen the understanding of their critical work.
Inaugural Award Recipient
 
The Immunization Action Coalition (lAC) is honored to present its inaugural IAC Becky Payne Award to Vaccinate Your Family: The Next Generation of Every Child By Two (VYF).
 
Founded as Every Child By Two (ECBT) in 1991, VYF's mission now promotes immunization for people of all ages, using social media to increase the publicís understanding of the benefits of vaccines, raise awareness of the need for timely immunization, and to enhance confidence in the safety of vaccines.
 
In addition to its extraordinary work in educating the public, VYF is also a leader in guiding state and national vaccine policy. IAC recognizes VYF especially for its strong policy voice.
 
More information about VYF is available on its website at www.vaccinateyourfamily.org.
In addition, we seek to provide a meaningful boost to the Awardee's ability to further serve the goals of protecting lives with vaccines.
