Asociación Española de Vacunología (AEV)
Audience: health-care professionals, the general public including parents and patients, and the media.
The aim of this web site is to be an essential source of information on diseases prevented through vaccination, background on vaccine development and vaccine safety. Vacunas.org includes official vaccination schedules, publications of interest, information about vaccination campaigns, links to other web sites of interest, and many question and answer pages on the history, concept, effectiveness and safety of vaccines. The AEV issues a monthly electronic newsletter which provides the abstracts of the latest scientific papers and other news on vaccination-related topics translated into Spanish. It has also launched Shared in Common Vaccines to promote immunization where it is most needed.
The mission of the AEV is to provide the public, health professionals, policy-makers and the media with up-to-date, scientifically valid information related to immunization to help them understand the issues and to make informed decisions. It is a service provided by the Asociación Española de Vacunología, a Spanish non-profit organization.
The site is updated on a monthly basis.
