Scientific Advisory Board

The Vaccinate Your Family Scientific Advisory Board is a panel of vaccine experts who provide the organization with their scientific and medical expertise to help us to provide scientifically-accurate information to the public.

Through the Vaccinate Your Family website, as well as the Vaccinate Your Family Facebook page, @VaxYourFam Twitter account, Vaccinate Your Family Instagram page, and the Shot of Prevention blog, our team aims to reach the public with messages about the importance of timely vaccinations and the safety of vaccines. In providing such a large amount of information to the public, we realize how important it is that we base our information on reputable, science-based sources such as peer-reviewed studies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).

Questions sent to Vaccinate Your Family are answered based on the best available scientific evidence, ACIP recommendations and medical best practices. We do not provide specific medical advice; however, we rely on the members of the Scientific Advisory Board to help us, as needed, when responding to questions from the public.
