The University of Washington School of Medicine, Center for an Informed Public, and Department of Communication have launched the One Vax Two Lives campaign to reflect how one vaccine in a pregnant person benefits and protects the life of the mother and her baby. 

Our mission is to provide medically and scientifically accurate information about vaccination to pregnant and breastfeeding individuals.

Run by doctors and scientists at the University of Washington School of Medicine and the Department of Communication who are dedicated to the public health of pregnant and nursing individuals.
