Vaccinate Wyoming Students Against A Deadly Disease

On Sunday, Sierra Krizman felt perfectly fine. On Monday, she fell ill. And on Tuesday, April 10, 2007, 20-year-old Krizman died from bacterial meningitis, an inflammation of the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord.

Krizman was a Colorado college student who died without benefiting from a vaccine that can reduce the risk of contracting this deadly disease. When her family shared her story at a school assembly in Casper, Wyoming, Susan Griffith's social studies students decided to write a vaccination bill as a class project.

In January, that bill was introduced in the state legislature by Wyoming Sen. Bill Landen, R-Casper. The bill would require all 11- and 12-year-olds to be vaccinated, and in its first year, vaccinate all children ages 13-18.

Help save lives. Stand with the high school students working for change and sign this petition to Wyoming lawmakers in support of the bill.
