Resources for the Professional

California Department of Public Health, Immunization Branch offers a wonderful website, www.eziz.org which is a GREAT tool for professionals in clinics and offices to use for educating new employees, updating skills, or verifying immunization practices. It covers every element of the vaccine and immunization process.

For Professional Information:
The Immunization Action Coalition, www.immunize.org, has a "new releases" page at www.immunize.org/newreleases/

"What's New @IAC" has new and revised website materials at www.immunize.org/siteg.htm

For information on current vaccine shortages with updates, the CDC has a link: www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/shortages/default.htm

The IAC has a weekly email newsletter that professionals can sign up for. The link is: www.immunize.org/express

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website and all its information at www.cdc.gov is also translated into the Spanish language. With one click on the homepage's upper right hand corner link for Spanish, the site will change to give information that will be readily accessible to those who speak Spanish.

The CDC's Advisory Council for Immunization Practice (ACIP) has recommendations and provisional recommendations re: vaccines, vaccine-preventable diseases, presentations, meeting notes and agendas that would be of great interest to professionals at www.cdc.gov/vaccine/acip/index.html.
So is the IAC (Immunization Action Coalition) at www.immunize.org

Another very excellent source of information for parents and professionals is at www.chop.edu which is the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Vaccine Education Center website and Dr. Paul Offit, who is a leading authority on Immunizations, is part of that site. They have additional information for children facing surgery, a virtual hospital tour, etc...all geared for kids.

The Institute for Vaccine Safety is based at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and provides excellent, thorough, and up-to-date information on vaccine safety. It is at www.vaccinesafety.edu
