Please donate to
the Immunization Action Coalition
Dear Reader of IAC Express,
Today I'm writing to ask that you consider making a gift to the Immunization
Action Coalition (IAC) in support of our work in immunization education.
With a talented staff of 15, IAC is the largest nonprofit organization in the
United States dedicated exclusively to keeping healthcare professionals up to
date on immunization news and information. We use our funding efficiently and
wisely and have earned Charity Navigator's highest rating, in part because
only 11% of our funding is used for administration.
Here are some examples of the educational work we've done so far in 2009 to
make sure healthcare professionals get the best quality immunization
information as soon as it's available:
- Hosted more than 5 million visitors to our
two educational websites,
- Distributed nearly 1.5 million online
Vaccine Information Statements (VISs) in English and more than 40 other
- Reviewed and updated hundreds of IAC's
online ready-to-copy immunization education materials for healthcare
professionals and patients, with more than 1.3 million copies downloaded
- Created two online issues of each of our
CDC-reviewed publications Needle Tips and Vaccinate Adults, with more than
145,000 downloads. To meet the large demand for H1N1 influenza
information, we are now working on a special edition of Needle Tips to be
published before the end of the year.
- Continued to inform the more than 36,000
subscribers to IAC Express of breaking news about the H1N1 influenza
pandemic and other developing immunization issues, publishing an
unprecedented 61 issues containing 650 articles
- Added 12 new Unprotected People Reports to
the 91 previously posted, with more than 170,000 copies downloaded. These
reports give first-hand personal accounts of the suffering caused by
The staff of IAC is proud of these
accomplishments and will use your support to continue to educate the nation's
healthcare professionals through IAC Express, Needle Tips, Vaccinate Adults,
constantly updated websites, VISs in dozens of languages, and ready-to-copy
