Be Wise, Immunize!

A child receives a free immunization through Rotary’s Be Wise, Immunize! program.

Be Wise Immunize has helped provide immunizations for hundreds of children against dreaded diseases such as flu and smallpox. Originally parents paid as they could for these crucial health safeguards. As support for the program grew, they moved to offering free immunizations to any child. Organized by the late Bill Crews of Southside, Be Wise, Immunize! became the model for other Rotary clubs across the country. The Southside Rotary Club and its members continue to support the effort with volunteer hours and financial support.
