Did You Know? Vaccine Safety Net

Published on in Parents PACK

The World Health Organization (WHO) has a program that identifies reliable vaccine safety information on the internet. This program, called the Vaccine Safety Net (VSN), grades websites on credibility, content, availability, accessibility and design. Vaccine-related sites deemed reliable and accurate are kept on a list available through the program. Sites in various languages are included in this list. The program also provides tips for evaluating content and credibility, so users can evaluate sites they find.

The Vaccine Education Center website is proud to be a member of the Vaccine Safety Net.
