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.

Read Our Blog

Each week, we endeavor to  inform our readers on the latest news and information regarding vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases. Does "spacing out" vaccines really make them safer? What should you know about meningococcal disease? And what’s happening with the new Zika vaccine? Find out by visiting our blog.
