1.  PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO IAC

Dear Friend of IAC Express,

Our dedicated and talented staff of 17 wants you to know how much you are valued as a colleague of the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC). Together, we are protecting and saving lives.

At this time of year when you may be deciding which charitable contributions to make, I ask that you consider supporting the work IAC does to increase immunization rates among the nation's children, adolescents, and adults.

As you know, we continually put timely, concise, and accurate information on vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases at the fingertips of the immunization community.

There is no other place to get all of the valuable immunization resources we provide, such as
  • Extensive and up-to-date patient handouts and staff education materials that reflect current ACIP immunization recommendations
     
  • Quarterly online periodicals, "Needle Tips" and "Vaccinate Adults"
     
  • Translations of Vaccine Information Statements in as many as 40 languages
     
  • "Ask the Experts" columns, which give readers direct access to CDC immunization experts Andrew T. Kroger, MD, MPH; Donna L. Weaver, RN, MN; and William L. Atkinson, MD, MPH

All of these resources are available free on our main website, www.immunize.org There, you may also donate online at http://www.immunize.org/support by using a credit card or by printing a contribution form, located at http://www.immunize.org/catg.d/u6020.pdf

I also would like to take this opportunity to make sure you know how much we depend on hearing from you. Your input is essential for guiding us as we work to provide you with the kind of information you need. Please write to me at any time at mailto:deborah@immunize.org

As you know, effective vaccine delivery requires the skilled hands of dedicated and knowledgeable healthcare professionals. Thank you for your participation in our shared effort to protect everyone through immunization.

Happy Holidays!


Deborah L. Wexler, MD
Executive Director
