Vaccines and Immunization

Vaccines are among the most powerful public health advancements and are critical for protecting health and advancing equity—having saved more lives than any other medical intervention in history. Vaccines are not only safe but also cost-effective in preventing death and disease. Policy efforts to boost vaccination rates are critical to protecting the health of Americans, preventing deadly outbreaks of new and emerging diseases, and ensuring a stable economy. These policies include building a robust vaccine supply, securing no-cost access to vaccines for patients, expanding the vaccine workforce and infrastructure, improving vaccine community engagement and education, and preventing the spread of vaccine misinformation and disinformation.
