The Massachusetts Vaccine Confidence Project is a statewide initiative formed in 2018 by the Immunization Initiative of the Massachusetts Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (MCAAP) and the Immunization Division of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH). In 2021, the Massachusetts Adult Immunization Coalition (MAIC)/JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. joined the project.
To increase vaccine confidence throughout Massachusetts to ensure that all residents are fully protected against serious, vaccine-preventable disease. People who lack vaccine confidence are more likely to seek exemptions to school-required immunizations and to pass on recommended vaccinations, which can put our children and communities at risk.
What we do
Collaborate with individuals and organizations which support immunization
Develop science-based immunization resources and training materials.
Educate healthcare professionals and the public
The Massachusetts Vaccine Confidence Project welcomes the opportunity to partner with individuals and organizations which share the goal of optimizing vaccine confidence throughout Massachusetts. If you have questions or are interested in joining the project please contact us.
