For Researchers : General
  • AIDScience is an online journal for scientists dedicated to AIDS/HIV prevention and vaccine research that features peer-reviewed articles, perspectives, columns, daily news and databases of global vaccine and prevention projects. It is published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
  • The Allied Vaccine Group is a collection of websites dedicated to presenting valid scientific information about vaccines. Its members present vaccine information based on scientific research, followed by honest disclosure of the research results. The Vaccine Page is a member.
  • The Brighton Collaboration is a resource for standardized case definitions of adverse events following immunization (AEFI). Its mission is is to facilitate the development, evaluation and dissemination of high quality information about the safety of human vaccines.
  • DNA Vaccine Web is a research page that also carries news about the vaccine world.
  • Expert Reviews in Molecular Medicine is a free Web-only international review journal on molecular medicine, including vaccination. It is a non-profit educational project of the Cambridge Clinical School. Articles are written by invited experts, peer reviewed pre-submission and professionally edited. They are available in html and PDF format.
  • History of Vaccination - Vaccines and vaccination have a long history, dating back to Edward Jenner and even before. Several websites have addressed that history, some in a very brief way and others in more detail. From the former category to the latter, here are two recommended sites: Vaccines - How and Why (from Access Excellence Classic Collection); The legacy of Edward Jenner (from the Archives of The British Medical Journal).
  • History of Vaccination 2 The World Health Organization (WHO) has a fairly complete story on vaccines from then to now, broken down into time periods.
  • Immunization At A Glance is a handy page of the World Bank website that gets at the key issues, beginning with the question, Why Is Immunization of High Priority?
  • The Immunization Education Program (IEP) is a public-private partnership between the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) and the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (PA AAP). It is of particular value for state-specific information.
  • The Institute For Vaccine Safety (IVS) at Johns Hopkins University draws on all the resources of that institution to provide a forum for the rational discussion of vaccine safety issues, based on IVS' own research. Newly-produced, the website is in a formative stage (as is the Institute), but already promises to be of extreme value to parents, other adults, practitioners, researchers and the responsible media.
  • IMGT, the international ImMuno GeneTics database, is headquartered in Montpellier, France, and in Hinxton, UK.
  • Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group's mission is to conduct clinical and basic research in the areas of vaccines, vaccine-preventable diseases, vaccine adjuvants, and vaccine delivery systems.
  • NPI, the National Partnership for Immunization, promotes immunization across the human life span. NPI is a joint program of National Healthy Mothers, the Healthy Babies Coalition and the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases.
  • Overview of Vaccine Safety is a page from the CDC National Immunization Program website. It carries comprehensive information on vaccine safety before and after licensing of a new vaccine, and offers sections on Improvements in Vaccine Safety and on The Future of Vaccine Safety.
  • PATH's Rotavirus Vaccine Program has launched a comprehensive new Web site that presents detailed information about the rotavirus, and describes the effort to accelerate the introduction of rotavirus vaccines. Designed to deliver needed information to a variety of critical audiences around the world, the site documents the widespread impact of rotavirus and describes the history of the effort to develop a safe, effective vaccine.
  • The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) is sponsoring the Pneumococcal Vaccines Accelerated Development and Introduction Plan (PneumoADIP) at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The plan's official Web site provides accurate, current information on pneumonia, meningitis, and other pneumococcal infections, and their prevention by vaccination. The site also documents the global impact of acute respiratory infections, and describes GAVI's international effort to get effective vaccines to the countries that need them most.
  • Vaccine Research Fact Sheets and Brochures is a page from the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases website that lists reports and press releases on vaccines dating back to 1995. It's a resource of value to each of The Vaccine Page's target audiences.
  • The Vaccine Special Emphasis Panel (VAAC) within NIH grew out of requests from both the AIDS and non-AIDS vaccine research communities for a study section dedicated to applications that focus on vaccine development. The page was updated in March 2000.
