Overview

Precision Vaccinations (PVax) is an international publisher of information people can trust to make informed vaccination decisions. PVax's network empowers doctors, nurses, and pharmacists to help reduce over-and-under vaccinations and enable people to live life to the fullest.

Known as the 'Wikipedia for Vaccines,' PVax's science-based, fact-checked vaccine library is continually enhanced with breaking news and to facilitate main-street consumer-provider conversations regarding which vaccine is best for your DNA.

Furthermore, PVax research-based vaccine information increases clinical trial result transparency, reveals cell-based science, and is vetted for commercial bias.

Recently, the World Health Organization said, ‘vaccine misinformation is a major threat to global health that could reverse decades of progress in tackling preventable diseases. Digital organizations have a responsibility to their users.... to ensure that they can access facts about vaccines.'

We have been 'fact-checking' vaccine information for years and believe a person's trust must be earned each day!

Mission Statement

Empower consumers, doctors, nurses, and pharmacists with trustworthy information to maximize each person's immunization needs and reduce overall healthcare costs.

Superior Content Management System

PVax's proprietary content management system empowers the company's multi-brand, innovative, producer-controlled syndication of mobile-user-centric user experiences while achieving low-cost publisher advantages. The CHAD 3.1 digital environment maximizes AI utility throughout PVax's content creation and distribution network.

Did You Know

Vaccine Market Overview

Life-saving vaccines have had a profound impact on the world. Globally, 2 to 3 million fewer deaths occur each year because people are vaccinated and protected from diseases. Today, almost anyone can receive immunizations against 17 once common and potentially deadly infectious diseases in the United States.

Soon, the promise of personalized vaccines will become a reality, disrupting the one-size-fits-all vaccination model.

According to the CDC, almost 3.5 billion vaccine doses were distributed in the United States over the past ten years. And research says that for every $1 spent on vaccines, $3 indirect benefits are realized from an economic perspective.

Diversity

Inclusiveness is at the heart of thinking and acting as journalists. The complex issues we face as a society require respect for different viewpoints. Race, class, generation, gender, and geography affect perspective. Reflecting these differences in our reporting leads to better, more nuanced stories and a better-informed community. Therefore, we seek diverse voices in our management and reporting staff.

Editorial Independence

Precision Vax publishes vaccine information based upon valid research from universities, government agencies, pharmaceutical manufacturers, and the WHO.  Furthermore, these organizations' editorial biases do not influence PV's independently published content. PV cites potential conflicts of interest on the same page as the published, relevant work.

PV's digital newsroom is insulated from any interaction with advertisers. Our news-gathering team is independent of commercial or political interests. We do not accept gifts or any remuneration to avoid any conflict of interest. Additionally, we do not allow third-parties to "ghost-write" news articles. If you have any questions, contact [email protected].

Medical Advisory Team

The Medical Advisory Team works closely with pharmacists, doctors, and nurses across various specialty areas to ensure PrecisionVax's published content is accurate, actionable, and understandable. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Robert Carlson, [email protected]

Fact-Checking

Our news team has been fact-checking health news for over 20 years and commits to doing its best to publish accurate information. We stand by the information we publish, and if it’s not correct, we will change it as quickly as possible. In addition, we take many steps to ensure accuracy, such as:

We investigate claims with skepticism; question assumptions; challenge conventional wisdom;

We confirm information with subject-matter experts and seek to corroborate what sources tell us by talking with other informed people or consulting documents;

We verify content, such as technical terms, stats, etc., against source documents or clarify who provides the information. For example, we may share relevant components of a story with a primary source or an outside expert to verify them.
