Precision Vaccinations is an international publisher of research-based vaccine information and news vetted for commercial bias, clinical relevance, and ‘main-street’ comprehension by doctors, nurses, and pharmacists. 

We have been 'fact-checking' vaccine information and news since 2016 and believe your trust must be earned each day!

With today’s ongoing ‘fake news’ debate and its influence on vaccination rates, Precision Vaccinations offers people a clear choice when searching for vaccine information they can trust. We enable people to reduce over-vaccination, adhere to vaccine schedules, and live life to the fullest.

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.'

Mission Statement

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

Unique Publishing Goals

  • Trusted - only licensed providers edit our content, delivering 100% transparency
  • Understandable - our clinical information is written with a positive voice, translated into "main street" conversation
  • Timely - breaking research is contextually integrated into the news as it is published;
  • Experience - each article is designed with uniform navigation, offering a consistent learning experience

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.

We seek diverse voices in our management and reporting staff. Here is our advisory board.

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.

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 a broad range of 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 organization 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. 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. We may share relevant components of a story with a primary source or an outside expert to verify them.

Corrections Policy

If our digital audiences cannot trust us to get the small things right, how can they trust us on the big things? We welcome feedback from our readers regarding the information that we publish. When a webpage is updated, the page date reflects when a change to the content on that page has been edited. PVax's network of medical editors reviews corrections related to clinical content.

Please send any suggested changes to [email protected].
