    Deborah L. Wexler, MD

    Dr. Deborah Wexler is founder and executive director of the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC). IAC’s mission is to increase immunization rates by providing the nation’s healthcare professionals and their patients with practical, concise, and up-to-date immunization information.

    During the 1990–91 U.S. measles epidemic, Wexler, in her medical practice in Saint Paul, Minnesota, established her first standing orders protocols so that registered nurses could provide vaccination services on their own without a physician being present. Since then, she has guided IAC’s development of standing orders templates for 14 routinely recommended vaccines, along with standing orders for managing medical emergencies related to the vaccination of both children and adults. Under her leadership, IAC also publishes general guidance materials, including “Using Standing Orders for Administering Vaccines: What You Should Know.” All IAC standing orders materials are freely available online at www.immunize.org/standing-orders.

    Dr. Wexler’s educational background includes a bachelor of science degree in biology and an MD degree from the University of Minnesota. She completed her residency training in the Department of Family Practice and Community Health at the University of Wisconsin. Wexler serves on multiple national committees involved in vaccine policy and strategy issues. She is the recipient of the 2010 Friend of Pharmacy Immunization Leadership Award from the American Pharmacists Association and the 2011 National Childhood Immunization Champion award from Every Child By Two.
