Talking About Vaccines: Alternative Schedules

The Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) has updated their Talking about Vaccines: Alternative Schedules gateway page with many resources from IAC, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and others. Resources are designed to help healthcare professionals explain to parents and patients why following the ACIP-recommended vaccination schedule is the best approach to preserving the health of children, adolescents, and adults. It includes authoritative documents and videos that describe the disadvantages of nonstandard schedules and the hazards of delaying vaccination. Experts explain how the human body can readily handle multiple vaccinations. To easily locate this web page from anywhere on, go to the light blue band of tabs across the top, choose the “Talking About Vaccines” tab (far right), and then select “Alternative Schedules” from the drop-down menu or click here for the direct link.
