Happy Father's Day, Dads! On this special day where fatherhood is cherished, we asked several dads why they got their kids vaccinated. Here is what they had to say.
I still remember the power of the heat; the air was thick and slapped you in the face as soon as you stepped outside. The rain may have cooled you briefly but brought with it a fresh surge of humidity leaving the air even heavier than before. It was my fourth year of medical school, and as I walked to the hospital wards, I could never in my life imagine what I was about to see.

These days, vaccines are on everyone’s mind. Vaccine misinformation and disinformation are on the rise and it’s more important than ever for every parent to have access to accurate information to make informed decisions about immunization.

Families across the United States are sending their young children back to school. School preparations are not limited to buying school supplies. Parents should make sure their children are up-to-date with vaccinations.

In 2014, 115,000 children died from Measles. That’s 13 children every hour, mostly under 5 years old, losing their lives to a vaccine-preventable disease.

Today, Health Affairs released its February 2016 issue, focusing on the complex series of events leading to the development, purchase and eventual delivery of vaccines.

From 19-22 February 2013, Sabin Executive Vice-President Dr. Ciro de Quadros and Program Officer Brian Shaw participated in the SEARO Regional Consultation on Measles Elimination and Rubella/CRS Control, held in Kathmandu, Nepal. As a member of the Measles Rubella Initiative (MRI), Sabin is committed to the elimination of measles, rubella & congenital rubella syndrome (CRS).
Rwanda’s measles-rubella vaccination campaign, which is being launched today, is the beginning of an effort to vaccinate more than 700 million children under 15 years of age against two disabling and deadly diseases.
One year ago at the GAVI Alliance pledge conference, partners exceeded expectations by pledging $4.3 billion dollars.
