Vaccine Safety Net

While many quality web sites offer science-based information about vaccine safety, others may provide unbalanced and misleading information. This can lead to undue fears, particularly among parents and patients. This web page provides a list of websites that provide information on vaccine safety and comply with good information practices, per the World Health Organization's Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety's recommended list of criteria to which sites providing information on vaccine safety should adhere. These extensive criteria cover issues related credibility, content, accessibility, and design. (PATH's Vaccine Resource Library is included in this list of websites.)
