Vaccine Makers Project (VMP)

The Vaccine Makers Project (VMP) is committed to public education about vaccine science via scientifically supported, historically accurate and emotionally compelling content. To this end, the VMP has developed a variety of school-based curricula to educate students about how the immune system works, how diseases develop and how vaccines work to prevent them. While the immediate goal is to provide teachers with the information and tools necessary to teach this scientific success story, the greater opportunity is not only to immunize our country’s next generation of parents against the misconceptions around vaccine safety, but also to equip them to critically evaluate the multitude of science-based topics central to how we live on and interact with this planet. Only when people understand and consider the scientific underpinnings of relevant topics can we expect that they will be equipped to make informed and logical decisions. Originally produced by Medical History Pictures and sponsored by the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, VMP has evolved to become the classroom-based program of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The Center’s team is composed of scientists, physicians, mothers and fathers who are devoted to the study and prevention of infectious diseases. The Center was launched in October 2000 to provide accurate, comprehensive and up-to-date information about vaccines and the diseases they prevent.
