The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) recently launched its new vaccines and immunization Web site. The site, www.cdc.gov/vaccines, replaced www.cdc.gov/nip. The format was redesigned employing Web usability testing, and has changed to a topic-driven layout. This change in format makes it easier for health care professionals, parents, and immunization partners to quickly find accurate vaccine and immunization information. The NCIRD says it “is committed to providing the latest and most credible immunization information,” and will update the site often. Suggestions and feedback about the new site can be submitted via email to ncirdwebteam@cdc.gov.
