AAP and Immunizations

AAP and Immunizations

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and its member pediatricians dedicate their efforts and resources to the health, safety and well-being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults. The AAP is an organization of 60,000 primary care pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists and pediatric surgical specialists. The AAP has an elected Board of Directors (BOD) including 10 District Chairpersons, a President, and the Executive Director. For more information about the AAP, including its structure and other health programs, visit www.aap.org.
