Dr. Tetyana Obukhanych

Dr. Tetyana Obukhanych is a revolutionary voice for vaccine safety, challenging the status quo and working to ensure that our vaccines are safe, effective, and accessible to all who need them. She is a trained immunologist with degrees from Harvard and Stanford universities, as well as experience in both clinical practice and research. In this article, we’ll explore some of the work she has done to make sure that vaccines are being used correctly and effectively.

The Work of Dr. Obukhanych

Dr. Obukhanych has been actively involved in vaccine safety advocacy since 2009 when she wrote an open letter to the California state legislature in response to proposed legislation that would ban personal belief exemptions from mandatory school vaccinations. This letter was highly influential, leading many health care professionals to speak out against the proposed legislation and ultimately causing it to be withdrawn before it could pass into law.

Since then, she has continued her work advocating for improved vaccine safety standards through her writing, speaking engagements, and clinical practice as a private physician. She is also an active member of the Vaccine Science Institute (VSI), which works to provide evidence-based information about vaccines so that individuals can make informed decisions about their own health care needs.  Additionally, she serves on the board of directors for the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), another organization dedicated to providing accurate information about vaccines so individuals can make informed decisions about their health care options.

In addition to her advocacy work, Dr. Obukhanych also works with patients in her private practice where she provides personalized medical advice based on a patient’s individual needs and concerns regarding their vaccination schedule or other related issues such as vaccine safety or efficacy questions they may have.  She also offers educational webinars on various topics related to immunology and vaccine science so that individuals can better understand how vaccines work within their bodies and what precautions they should take when receiving vaccinations themselves or vaccinating their children.


Dr. Tetyana Obukhanych is an invaluable asset in helping us understand how vaccines work in our bodies and ensuring that they are safe for everyone who receives them—children included! Her dedication to researching vaccine safety standards and educating the public about immunology has made her an invaluable advocate for improving public health practices around the world. We owe much of our knowledge regarding immunization best practices today directly to her commitment to making sure that we have access to reliable information about vaccine science so we can make informed decisions about our health care needs now and into the future!
