A number of our members have asked for an easy reference tool to help identify which vaccines are produced by which vendor. We have created a list for you, our printable Vaccine Information at a Glance pdf. Here's another great resource. A vaccine catch-up scheduler for children under six.
Below are links to industry Web sites and resources that our members find useful.
American Academy of Pediatrics
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and its member pediatricians dedicate their efforts and resources to the health, safety and well-being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults. The AAP has approximately 60,000 members in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and many other countries. Members include pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists and pediatric surgical specialists. More than 34,000 members are board-certified and called Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP). Visit site.
The AAP's training guide helps educate and train pediatric office staff in all aspects of immunizing a practice's patients. It includes information on storage and handling of vaccines, communication with parents, and vaccine information statements.
American Academy of Family Physicians
The American Academy of Family Physicians is the national association of family doctors. It is one of the largest national medical organizations, with more than 94,600 members in 50 states, D.C., Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam. Until October 3, 1971, it was known as the American Academy of General Practice. The name was changed in order to reflect more accurately the changing nature of primary health care. Visit site.

Centers for Disease Control & Prevention
For over 60 years, the CDC has been dedicated to protecting health and promoting quality of life through the prevention and control of disease, injury, and disability.

CDC Vaccine Price List
The CDC Vaccine Price Lists posted on this website provide current vaccine contract prices and list the private sector vaccine prices for general information. Contract prices are those for CDC vaccine contracts that are established for the purchase of vaccines by immunization programs that receive CDC immunization grant funds (i.e., state health departments, certain large city immunization projects, and certain current and former U.S. territories). Private providers and private citizens cannot directly purchase vaccines through CDC contracts. Private sector prices are those reported by vaccine manufacturers annually to CDC. All questions regarding the private sector prices should be directed to the manufacturers. Visit site.
