The Pennsylvania Immunization Coalition encourages all Pennsylvania residents to receive all recommended, age-appropriate immunizations. Our mission is to promote timely and effective immunizations for all Pennsylvania residents across their life span.
The PAIC is a diverse group of passionate, energetic, and committed partners working together to ensure that no one in Pennsylvania suffers from vaccine preventable illnesses. We believe this can be achieved through focusing our efforts on education, advocacy, and access.
Based on overwhelming scientific evidence, we believe that vaccines are safe and effective, and not only protect individuals, but entire communities, including those who are too young to be fully immunized or others who cannot receive recommended immunizations due to compromised immune systems.
The PAIC works with health care providers, local health departments, local coalitions, businesses, policy makers, and community organizations to fulfill our mission.
By focusing on eight areas – education, community reach, advocacy, awareness campaigns, media relations, clinical support, partnerships, and the promotion of family health – the coalition leverages the strengths and resources of our members and community partners to maximize the effectiveness of our efforts.
