IAC's activities include the publication of three periodicals: "Needle Tips," circulated semi-annually to 100,000-190,000 providers of pediatric immunization services; "Vaccinate Adults," circulated semi-annually to 100,000-150,000 providers of adult immunization services; and "Vaccinate Women," circulated annually to 50,000 healthcare professionals including ACOG members, all OB/Gyn residents, women's health specialists, and others. IAC maintains four websites: www.immunize.org (for health professionals), www.vaccineinformation.org (for patients and parents), www.hepprograms.org (for those interested in viral hepatitis), and www.izcoalitions.org (for immunization coalitions). We offer two free electronic newsletters: "IAC Express," a weekly listserv with news about all immunization and vaccine topics; and "HEP Express," a monthly publication featuring information on the prevention and treatment of viral hepatitis. IAC also creates immunization and hepatitis educational materials for healthcare professionals and patients, available via the websites or CD-ROM.
