1.  New: March 2007 issue of Needle Tips offers many resources for childhood, adolescent, and adult immunization

IAC recently mailed the latest issue of Needle Tips (March 2007) to 160,000 health professionals and others who work in the field of immunization. Packed with immunization resources for health professionals, patients, and parents, the 24-page issue is well worth downloading. All articles and education pieces, except editorials, have been thoroughly reviewed by immunization and hepatitis experts at CDC.
