The decision about whether or not to get a vaccine for themselves or for their children could be influenced by the information given out from several organisations and governmental bodies. An individual is likely to determine the trustworthiness of an organization based on whether there is good coverage about the organization on Wikipedia. Hence, it becomes important that information regarding organizations that promote vaccine safety is present on Wikipedia, so that people trust the information disseminated by these organizations.

Member organizations or funders of Vaccine Safety Net a World Health Organization led initiative are listed below. Please check the notability of the organisations on Wikipedia:Notability_(organizations_and_companies) before creating articles from this list.
