What Others Say About IAC

The Immunization Action Coalition, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, works to increase immunization rates and prevent disease by creating and distributing educational materials for health professionals and the public that enhance the delivery of safe and effective immunization services. The Coalition also facilitates communication about the safety, efficacy, and use of vaccines within the broad immunization community of patients, parents, health care organizations, and government health agencies.

IAC publishes three periodicals---Needle Tips, Vaccinate Adults, and Vaccinate Women with a combined circulation of nearly 300,000. Needle Tips, a 24-page publication full of information about immunization across the age span, is mailed to health professionals twice each year. Vaccinate Adults, a 12-page publication that promotes adult immunization recommendations, is sent to adult medicine specialists twice each year. Vaccinate Women, an 8- to 12-page publication, is mailed to obstetrician/gynecologists and other women's health specialists once each year.

Due to our close collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the funding they provide, contributions from our members, educational grants provided by several foundations and companies, and the world-class expertise of our Advisory Board, we have been able to create, find, and distribute the most complete, up-to-date, and accurate supply and listing of immunization and hepatitis B resources available anywhere.

We would be delighted to have you join the thousands of people who support the Coalition. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Help yourself to the unique resource materials we offer. All of our print materials are camera-ready, copyright-free, and reviewed by CDC for technical accuracy with the exception of opinion pieces written by non-CDC authors. Our materials are ready for you to make copies and distribute to your patients and staff. Be our guest!
