There have been many stories in the news about vaccines and sometimes it’s hard to tell the facts. We have provided resources for you to print and read to answer a variety of questions that we know parents are concerned about. The CDC has a variety of information about vaccine safety which you can find here. The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia also has put together great parent resources in their vaccine education center answering questions about vaccine safety including a Parents PACK (Possessing, Accessing and Communicating Knowledge about vaccines) which you will find here.
We encourage you to take a look at both of these websites for some excellent information regarding vaccines and safety. If you are not able to find answers to your concerns feel free to submit a question to our panel of physician experts.
You can learn more about the Vaccine Education Center and the Vaccine Education Center (VEC) team made up of scientists, physicians, mothers and fathers. Visit About the Vaccine Education Center Page for more information.
