Please Donate to the Immunization Action Coalition!

The Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) is proud to be a trusted resource for the nation’s immunization healthcare professionals. Our talented staff of 23 is the largest of any nonprofit immunization organization in the United States and is dedicated exclusively to providing healthcare professionals, the public, policymakers, and the media up-to-date immunization information and materials. Our IAC Express subscribers are invaluable allies in educating the public about the importance of vaccination.

As 2015 draws to a close, we are asking our subscribers to make a tax-deductible donation to support IAC’s important work.

Every week throughout the year, IAC Express provides you with the critical immunization information you need in your work. Thus far in 2015, we have produced 57 issues with 835 articles that advance your immunization practice. Continuously since November 1997, we have published a total of 1,218 issues of IAC Express.

We've brought you news of updated ACIP recommendations, newly released VISs, helpful patient handouts, new staff education materials, and much more.

Throughout the year, our “Ask the Experts” feature brings answers to your questions from experts at CDC.

Our greatest satisfaction comes from believing that IAC Express plays an important role in your ability to prevent disease and save lives.

More than 90 cents of every dollar IAC receives goes to our immunization projects.

We wish you happiness in this holiday season, and we look forward to continuing our work together in the new year.

Happy Holidays!

Deborah L. Wexler, MD, executive director, and the entire staff of the Immunization Action Coalition
