Governor Deal and First Lady Promote Efforts to Keep Georgians Healthy

July 15, 2013

Governor and First Lady Deal visited Habersham Medical Center in Habersham County, Georgia in support of July as Immunization Awareness Month.  As Chairwoman for the Georgia Children’s Cabinet, the First Lady will be dedicating July towards raising immunization awareness across Georgia, specifically for our most vulnerable population under two years of age.

The Georgia Children’s Cabinet teamed up with Hallmark to create immunization cards which contain helpful information for new parents.

District Representative Terry Rogers, Senator John Wilkinson and Governor’s Office for Children and Families Executive Director Katie Jo Ballard also showed their support of Immunization Awareness Month by accompanying Gov. Deal and Mrs. Deal on the visit.
