NewSee the new TIDE Vaccine Safety Module!  This module is designed to help you explain the dangers of vaccine-preventable diseases and the effectiveness of vaccines against them, as well as answering parents' common vaccine safety questions.

TIDE is a group of highly interactive, case-based modules. It's designed to help clinicians learn to store, give, and communicate about immunizations with technical excellence.

Why study vaccine delivery? It's worth doing; it's worth doing excellently.

What is a TIDE module? Each module (list shown left) covers an aspect of immunization delivery. They're flexible: Stop and start. Work on them alone or in groups as part of an in-service.

Why register? If you register, you can stop, save your work, and then log in and pick up where you left off. It also allows you to obtain a CE certificate.

We are sorry, but CME is currently not available.

Browse mode allows you to see a sample module.

How much do you think physicians should learn about vaccine storage?

None, others should be in charge
A little, enough to check
A lot, ultimately, their responsibility
