Membership Types, Eligibility and Benefits

As an immunization manager or other immunization professional, you have the power to protect your country's population from vaccine-preventable diseases. But your job is a difficult one, and often, you do not have the support you need.

IAIM is changing that. IAIM, as the first-ever international professional association for immunization managers (and the teams who support them), is YOUR association. Joining IAIM will help you obtain the knowledge, skills, and leadership capabilities you need to advance your professional development and excel at your job.

See the table below for information on the types of memberships available, who is eligible for each type of membership, the benefits given to each type of membership, and the cost for each membership.
