Vaccine Central is a blog designed for parents and anyone interested in obtaining accurate information about vaccines. While there is plenty of helpful information available on the internet, there are equal amounts of misleading or opinion based publications that attempt to sway public opinion in one way or another. Vaccine Central strives to provide information and links about relevant, fact-based resources to help individuals weed through misinformation, save time navigating through websites and receive the most up to date information about vaccine related issues.
“The purpose of this blog will be to present the best information available, and trying to stay clear of expressing too many opinions. Every entry will be chock full of links to the sources of my information, so the reader can judge for herself if my conclusions are warranted. The idea is to make information available to anyone interested, so we may all make our decisions based on the facts not the hype.
Join me in my journey of discovery. I hope it is a pleasant one for us all!”
The History of Vaccines is an informational, educational website in development by The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, the oldest medical association in the United States. The College is launching The History of Vaccines to provide a living, changing chronicle of the compelling history of vaccination, from pre-Jennerian variolation practices, to the defeat of polio in the Western Hemisphere, to cutting-edge approaches to vaccination for cancer, atherosclerosis, and addiction. The project works to increase public knowledge and understanding of the ways in which vaccines work, how they have been developed, and the role they have played in the improvement of human health.
