Immune Readiness Courses

The idea for Project Immune Readiness grew out of the experiences of the Allergy-Immunology Department and the Triservice Immunization-Allergy Specialist Course supported since 1976 by Walter Reed Army Medical Center Command. The need for standardized resources to perform quality immunization services in the 21st century became evident in the 1990's. The Armed Forces Epidemiological Board (AFEB), civilian scientific advisors to the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs), sponsored a review of "Vaccines in the Military" in 1999. In that report, the AFEB recommended that DoD develop educational resources to support immunization services. Project Immune Readiness is one outcome of those recommendations. In effort to provide wide-spread vaccine education, many of the vaccine courses used by the DoD have been made available to civilians through this website. This website is not funded or supported by the VHC Network or the United States government, but it is made available to civilians as a public service with permission from the VHC Network.
