Clinicians & Researchers

Vaccine Resource Center

The ATS Vaccine Resource Center (VRC) is designed to provide trusted, vetted information to clinicians, patients, and the public about vaccination. It will focus on:

  1. General vaccination topics, including influenza, pneumococcal and COVID-19 vaccination and
  2. A cooperative grant awarded to ATS and six additional specialty societies to advance adult vaccination; this grant is entitled "Specialty Societies Advancing Adult Immunization (SSAAI)".

The VRC includes a curated range of high-quality materials and programs from ATS, governmental resources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, select peer societies and patient interest organizations.  Over time, we will add new materials, with emphasis on those representing learnings from the SSAAI grant project. For additional information about this Vaccine Resource Center, email Judy Corn.  For information about the SSAAI grant project, Amy Stern or Anna Hrovat.
