Please donate to IAC—our year-end appeal

As 2020 draws to a close, we are asking our IAC Express subscribers to consider making a tax-deductible donation to support the important work of the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC).

IAC’s vital role within the nation’s immunization community is summarized in our end-of-year appeal letter which can read at

Our talented staff of 30 is the largest of any nonprofit immunization organization in the United States and is dedicated exclusively to providing healthcare professionals, the public, and policymakers—as well as the media—with up-to-date immunization information and materials. We are proud to be your trusted resource.

Every week throughout the year, IAC Express provides you with the critical immunization information you need in your work. Continuously since November 1997, we have published 1,541 issues of IAC Express.

We bring 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 presents questions with answers from IAC’s team of immunization experts.

We derive great satisfaction from knowing that IAC Express plays an important role in your ability to prevent disease and save lives.

If you feel the same way, please make a donation at

Approximately 90% of IAC’s revenue goes directly to carrying out our widely relied-upon immunization projects, with a very low 10% used for administrative costs.

Please support IAC with an end-of-year gift! Gifts can be made in honor or memory of a colleague, friend, or family member.

All of us at the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) wish you, our readers, a safe, happy, and healthy remainder of the holiday season. We do not plan to publish another issue of IAC Express until January 6, 2021. But we will stay alert in these turbulent times and will publish a special edition, if warranted.

Happy Holidays!

Deborah L. Wexler, MD, Executive Director
and the entire staff of the Immunization Action Coalition
