Team Vaccine is a blog created by the Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition, an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to improving access, delivery and demand for children’s immunizations to keep Colorado kids healthy. Team Vaccine features doctors, nurses, parents, researchers, advocates and community members who are passionate about immunization and protecting kids from vaccine-preventable disease.
As a team of contributors, we aim to provide a diverse array of stories and experiences, along with evidence-based research and facts, to enrich the discussion on children’s immunizations. We’ll cover it all – from current vaccines news and hot topics to the hard science – to give you up-to-date, reliable information on vaccines.
In our archives, you’ll find posts from our 2010 Colorado Mom2Mom blog, which was written by moms for moms. While this blog served as an important source of information and discussion for many Colorado moms, we’ve decided to grow our blog to include all the members of our community who share an interest in and concern for this topic. We hope to remain a trusted source and diverse, active community for all Coloradans seeking information about immunization.
Funding for the Blog
This blog is managed and funded by the Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition (CCIC), an independent nonprofit that promotes improved access, delivery and demand for children’s vaccinations to keep Colorado healthy. CCIC is funded through foundation, government and individual support. CCIC adheres to strict fundraising standards and does not accept funding from vaccine manufacturers or distributors.
CCIC believes it’s important to fund projects that give parents accurate, timely information on childhood immunizations. Dr. Aimee Pugh-Bernard received a modest stipend for her work on this blog.
Colorado Mom2Mom’s Melanie also received a stipend for her work on the 2010 blog. Kaiser Permanente generously donated video production to the 2010 vlog project, but did not have editorial influence on the project’s content.
Comments on this blog are disabled. Team Vaccine does not wish to become a platform for others to spread misinformation and fear. We know that speaking up for vaccination is often met with resistance, and we seek to provide a safe, welcoming space for advocates to share their stories, experience and knowledge. We are committed to sharing the facts, empowering our community to voice their support, and keeping kids healthy.
