As we prepare for the #MarchforScience and the kickoff of National Infant Immunization Week (#NIIW) on April 22nd, we'll be highlighting topics related to vaccine science throughout the week.

The percentage of kindergartners who received all required vaccines rose to 95.6 percent in 2016-17, up...

The purpose of Texas House Bill 2249 is to inform parents about school specific immunization rates so they can make informed decisions on where to place their child. This is especially important for a child with a weakened immune system due to chronic disease or a child who may be undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. Non-medical exemptions in Texas have risen from about 2,3000 in 2013 to...

The positive impact of the HPV vaccine may be even greater than we thought. In Scotland, where approximately 90% of girls get the HPV vaccine by age 13, researchers have found a 90% reduction in HPV infection since the vaccine was made available in 2008. Sadly, we still have work to do in the U.S., where only 63% of girls and 50% of boys have started the vaccination series. #BeHPVFree [...
