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.
