The Project

The VICNetwork provides public health professionals and communication specialists with access to Webinars featuring nationally renowned public health advocates and social media specialists, along with linkages to resources and technical assistance to build a communication network designed to promote public health and immunizations.

The Webinars, along with this website and new media tools, will help create an online community where health care professionals can gain valuable information about current immunization topics and social media tools.

In spring of 2011, the VICNetwork presented a ‘Virtual Immunization Simmposium’ as the centerpiece of this two-year project.  The Simmposium was held as an on-line conference that provided the opportunity to interact and collaborate with other participants virtually and share strategies, resources, and best practices around communication and disease prevention.
