Vaccines Save Lives

We understand that learning about how to best protect yourself and your family from diseases can be hard, which is why we have dedicated nearly a decade to providing the facts about vaccines.

Let’s have a conversation. Join us in the fight to save lives.

The Truth About Vaccines

Vaccination is one of the greatest achievements of modern medicine.

Because of the success in preventing diseases through vaccination, before COVID-19, some people hadn’t seen the dangers and devastation of vaccine-preventable diseases.

Measles was declared eliminated in the U.S. in 2000, 3 decades after the vaccine was introduced.

Before the measles vaccine was developed, nearly everyone in the U.S. got measles and hundreds died from it each year.

In 2019, measles cases soared in the U.S.
Other vaccine-preventable diseases, including
hepatitis A and B, flu, and whooping cough,
are also on the rise.

Almost 600,000 people have lost their lives to COVID-19.

In 2019, measles cases soared in the U.S.
Other vaccine-preventable diseases, including hepatitis A and B, flu, and whooping cough, are also

The World Health Organization named vaccine hesitancy, the reluctance or refusal to vaccinate despite available vaccines, among its recently released list of 10 global health threats for 2019.

It has never been more important to educate about the
safety and efficacy of vaccines.
Low vaccination rates threaten public health.

measles outbreaks in 2019

From January 1–October 1, 2019, a total of 1,249 measles cases and 22 measles outbreaks were reported in the United States. This represents the most U.S. cases reported in a single year since 1992, and the second-highest number of reported outbreaks annually since measles was declared eliminated* in the United States in 2000.

A survey of first-time expectant moms shows that while 85 percent of respondents have already created a plan by the second trimester for vaccinating their baby, only 6 percent are very satisfied with their current level of knowledge about childhood vaccines.

About a third of parents who initially refuse a vaccine change their minds after educational efforts, according to an American Academy of Pediatrics member survey.

For Parents

Did you know that before vaccines, parents in the U.S. could expect that every year:

Hover over each stat to learn more.

We want parents to know more about the benefits of vaccination.

That’s why we created I Vaccinate and are proud to partner with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to get parents the information they need to protect their children.

I Vaccinate helps parents protect their children from vaccine-preventable diseases by providing credible information and tools.

For Providers

Doctors and other healthcare professionals remain, by far, parents’ most trusted source of information for vaccination.

The Franny Strong Foundation and the Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA) Health Foundation have developed an online toolkit for healthcare providers, which will assist providers in conversations with parents.
