Date Description
GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals (GSK) operates, a Web site dedicated to health and vaccine issues. Primarily oriented toward the health care practitioner, this multilingual site (English, Spanish, and Chinese) provides news and educational information about vaccine-preventable diseases, immunization, and vaccines (GSK vaccines in particular). The training resources and vaccine awareness services are designed to support the day-to-day needs of health care professionals who manage local immunization services.
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.
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 Children's Vaccine Program at PATH aims to significantly reduce the time it takes for vaccines to reach children living in poor countries. More than two million children die each year from diseases that these vaccines could prevent.
Focusing on the immunization needs of children and adolescents, VaccineCheck offers a wealth of vaccination information that is clearly and concisely presented. The highlight of the Web site is the unique, interactive immunization planner. On-line software allows the user to enter a child's age and individual immunization history. It then creates an accurate catch-up schedule for a child who is behind in his or her immunizations. Based on the guidance of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the CDC, and other equally reliable sources (including two members of the Allied Vaccine Group), the software generates a printable schedule that can help clarify a confusing array of separate immunization records.
This Aventis Pasteur Web site provides an excellent overview of polio. It describes the nature and effects of the disease, and documents the intensive research efforts that led to the development of the vaccines that are in use today. The narrative also reports on the progress of the ongoing global eradication campaign. Since it is provided by a major vaccine producer, the site does have a distinct marketing orientation. However, that doesn't obviate the value of this concise, well-written history of the struggle to overcome a devastating disease.
The Immunization Action Coalition (IAC), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, works to increase immunization rates and prevent disease by creating and distributing educational materials for health professionals and the public that enhance the delivery of safe and effective immunization services. Its publications include NEEDLE TIPS and the Hepatitis B Coalition News, VACCINATE ADULTS!, and VACCINATE WOMEN, with a combined circulation of 400,000. IAC also maintains four Web sites and two listservs. The Immunization Action Coalition is a member of the Allied Vaccine Group.
