Our pro-health website of the day is The History of Vaccines a website set up by The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, the oldest professional society in the United States. Its mission includes: “to increase public knowledge and understanding of the ways in which vaccines, toxoids, and passive immunization work, how they have been developed, and the role they have played in the improvement of human health.” a very worthwhile goal in my opinion. The site is very attractive visually and has loads of great information, and my personal favorite is the Timelines portion of the page which provides a nice visual of the history of vaccines and a great jumping point to do further more in-depth research. I encourage everyone to bookmark and to peruse this most excellent website.
