Useful Internet links about vaccines and vaccination

Bandolier has tried to take some of the pain out of looking for useful sites on vaccines for professionals and consumers by doing a bit of searching and checking. Any site that took more than 20 seconds to load we omitted, because we have fast access and the patience of a gnat. Those with slow access might take forever to open these sites. Otherwise the inclusion criteria are pretty broad - UK first, then any site that made us want to spend a few minutes and told us stuff we thought was interesting.
