Immunization State Snapshots
This state snapshot outlines successes from a CDC-funded immunization project.
AcademyHealth (AH), Immunize Colorado (IC), and the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) coordinated efforts for a three-year CDC funded cooperative agreement to implement new state-based strategies and policies to address immunization gaps among low-income pregnant women and children. The project’s objectives were to support states in their Medicaid policies or outreach procedures to facilitate vaccination of children living in poverty, implement policies that include providers caring for pregnant women and/or adults as covered vaccinators, and increase utilization of Medicaid resources for immunization information system (IIS) sustainability. Participating states include Colorado, Hawaii, Kentucky, Montana and New Mexico. These snapshots provide an overview of the successes these 5 states were able to achieve during the project.
