Please Donate For Valley Fever Vaccine
Lisa F. Shubitz, DVM is conducting research for a canine vaccine to prevent valley fever. She works at the Valley Fever Center for Excellence, Department of Veterinary Science and Microbiology, The University of Arizona. Anyone who is concerned about valley fever or has been impacted by it should consider donating to her research. It is tax-deductible. Without additional financial support from the community, this vaccine will not happen. This may also be a stepping stone for a future human vaccine. Please go to this link to contribute whatever you can. [Dog Vaccine]
