"I wanted to thank you for all the hard work and the great job you do in promoting immunizations and keeping healthcare professionals informed. Your organization is an invaluable resource for me... Thank you again for all your efforts--they are greatly appreciated."
Primary Care Partners, Grand Junction, CO, September 2, 2010
"I've been a subscriber to IAC Express for a while and having forwarded so many articles to my colleagues, finally suggested STRONGLY that they each sign up for it! Thanks for the great resources!"
City of Clifton Health Department, NJ, August 13, 2010
"Please let your staff know that their work is so helpful in so many ways. The busy pediatrician offices that I visit here in Central Florida really benefit from having good, easily digestible and pointed information that the Immunization Action provides. In addition to sharing the IAC Express by email, I provide photocopies of Needle Tips to the offices when I make either audit or educational visits. I encourage the doctor or lead nurse to make them available in the lunch room or other location where staff might find that they have just a few moments of free time. There is a distinct advantage in being able to provide information that is not branded as being sourced from the vaccine industry or government programs. It seems that people are more willing to accept and believe information that comes from what they consider to be an unbiased source. So, keep up the good work and remember that you are all very close partners with parents and pediatricians here in Florida even though we are separated by hundreds of miles."
Bureau of Immunization, Bartow, FL, August 10, 2010
"I love IAC Express and regularly forward it to the 5 county health departments and 100+ private providers I serve. Please keep up the great job, it is so important for all of us."

Fort Drum, NY, November 30, 2009
"...It can be a challenge working in a country without the same regulations, procedures, and standards as the U.S. Having IAC as a support system and credible resource is invaluable. The group of doctors we work with are very dedicated and have formed a working group to review their protocols. They will use IAC as their reference point. I subscribe to IAC Express and the information has helped me on a weekly, if not daily basis. I am a school nurse with 1,000 students from over 60 countries. You can imagine what their vaccine records look like. Many are in different or multiple languages and most do not follow the CDC guidelines. Again, thank you for your help, it is so appreciated!"
