ingredients & safety

Immunizations are a complicated topic and can cause anxiety or generate unanswered questions.  Parents of younger children may have very different questions about vaccines than healthcare professionals, while students, volunteers, employees, and travelers all have different educational needs regarding vaccines.

In a world of misinformation and mistrust regarding immunizations, the Immunize Oregon coalition has created this site as a guide to some of our favorite resources.  These come from a variety of sources, but each has been thoroughly reviewed by experts and has our strong recommendation.
