For Parents : Preventable Diseases
  • CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control) information on vaccines for specific diseases includes: Chickenpox; Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (whooping cough); Hepatitis A; Hepatitis B; Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type b); Measles, Mumps and Rubella; and Polio.
  • Canada's flu vaccination site Blast the Flu (and in French, Méchante la Grippe) is provided by the National Influenza Immunization Campaign. It carries an especially valuable FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section in both sections.
  • The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) was founded in 1953 to foster the science of cancer immunology, which is based on the premise that the body's immune system can be mobilized against cancer. The Institute has been a sustaining force in cancer and immunology research for over 50 years.
  • Chickenpox, or varicella, is the focus of The Christopher Aaron Chinnes Foundation, Inc. website, in memory of a child who lost his life to the disease before any vaccine was available. This is an advocacy site with a strong message.
  • The City of Columbia, Mo. maintains a website featuring its walk-in immunization service. Other health services are also described.
  • Dr. Reddy's Pediatric Office on the Web is a collection of useful information on children's health, with a heavy emphasis on vaccines and vaccination. The site is maintained by Dr. Vinay N. Reddy, a pediatrician on staff at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. It appears to be quite current on vaccine issues.
  • Healthy Living - Immunisation is a page from the website sponsored by the State Government of Victoria, Australia. It gives information on all diseases that should be prevented by vaccination.
  • The Immunization page of the BabyCenter website includes an easy-to-understand rundown on childhood immunizations and the compelling arguments in favor of them. Vaccines against individual diseases are addressed.
  • "Influenza, The Virus, the Disease, and How to Protect Yourself" is an elegant offering from the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases and the National Coalition for Adult Immunization. Navigating within this website is quite easy.
  • Informed Parents Against VAPP (IPAV) is a non-profit parent's group representing families afflicted by Vaccine Associated Paralytic Polio (VAPP) each year from the live-virus, oral polio vaccine. It supports recent recommendations by the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for an all-IPV (inactivated polio vaccine given by injection) starting January 1, 2000.
  • This Aventis Pasteur Web site provides an excellent overview of polio. It describes the nature and effects of the disease, and documents the intensive research efforts that led to the development of the vaccines that are in use today. The narrative also reports on the progress of the ongoing global eradication campaign. Since it is provided by a major vaccine producer, the site does have a distinct marketing orientation. However, that doesn't obviate the value of this concise, well-written history of the struggle to overcome a devastating disease.
  • PKIDs is a parent group whose highest priority is to seek the best care for their own children and to prevent other children from being harmed by infectious diseases. PKIDs is funded by parents, individuals, foundations and corporations, including unrestricted grants from pharmaceutical companies.
  • Rotavirus Online is a multioption World Wide Web resource dedicated to presenting the latest information about rotavirus disease and vaccine development. It is maintained by David O. Matson, M.D., Ph.D., of the Center for Pediatric Research, Eastern Virginia Medical School, Norfolk, VA, USA.
  • Rotavirus vaccine information is given in a brief fact sheet on the website of the Bill and Melinda Gates Children's Vaccine Program and also in a more complete statement that discusses the rotavirus problem in depth.
