What We Do

The Immunization Partnership helps individuals, physicians, and others with an interest in immunization to make smart choices about protecting our community from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Why We Do It

Every year, roughly 3 million people die from vaccine-preventable diseases, and countless more suffer life-long disabilities. We believe in preventing what's preventable.


How We Do it

Our mission is to eradicate vaccine-preventable diseases by educating the community, advocating for evidence-based public policy, and supporting immunization best practices.

Community Forums

TIP conducts community forums, or Lunch & Learns, where experts share information on current topics in immunization. While geared specifically toward front-line immunizers (nurses, medical assistants, etc.), these events are free and open to all who are interested in the topic.

Upcoming Events

Community Immunity

The Community Immunity exercise is an interactive demonstration of how one's vaccination status can contribute to how far and how quickly the flu can spread through a community.

    5 public health threats in Texas scarier than Ebola

    BY Anna C. Dragsbaek
    Originally published in the The Texas Tribune

    There’s no doubt about it: Ebola is scary.

    The disease has a high mortality rate and no known cure. No vaccine is available to halt its spread. And now it hasarrived in Dallas — the first confirmed case in the U.S.

    A media firestorm is brewing, and the public is understandably concerned. But the threat of Ebola spreading in the U.S. is nominal. Highly advanced disease surveillance systems, well-developed quarantine and isolation laws, adequate hygiene and sanitation, and top-notch medical services will keep the U.S. from facing a crisis similar to the one sweeping through West Africa.   

    But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be worried about infectious diseases. In fact, there are at least five other preventable threats right now that are far more menacing — and Texans would be wise to pay close attention to them.

    Nothing to fear from migrant kids

    BY Anna C. Dragsbaek
    Originally published in the Texas Tribune

    As the humanitarian crisis on our border grows, many Texans have expressed concern about the possible spread of disease from the flood of immigrant children entering the state. These children supposedly pose a threat to national security because of the presence of tropical diseases in their countries of origin.

    Here’s the truth: Texans have nothing to fear from these children.
