Since 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics has worked in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to implement the AAP Childhood Immunization Support Program (CISP). The CISP aims to improve the immunization delivery system for children in the United States. The CISP website provides immunization information and resources to pediatricians, health-care professionals and families. The site includes resources developed by AAP, including a section of "Frequently asked questions for parents" and video clips about vaccine-preventable diseases.

The AAP is a not-for-profit corporation organized for scientific and educational purposes. The Academy has approximately 60 000 members in the United States, Canada and Latin America. Members include pediatricians, pediatric medical sub-specialists and pediatric surgical specialists. The AAP and its members are committed to the attainment of optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.

The CISP website is updated on a daily basis.
