Description of the website

Vacunas.org is a website founded by the Spanish Vaccinology Association (AEV) included in the WHO vaccine safety network that adheres as closely as possible to the Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety.

Since its creation in 2006, Vacunas.org has become the reference website on vaccination in the Spanish language. The use of social networks brings a new dimension to the science of health communication, because it is a means used by professionals, patients and any Internet user, allowing infinite interactions between the actors involved.

Since October 2011, the AEV presents active accounts on Facebook and Twitter, spreading information from www.vacunas.org (news, technical specifications, immunization schedules, courses and congresses) and other extracted from the press and evidence-based bibliography.
