Immunization is one of the most effective strategies against childhood illness. Yet, despite designation as a national priority, the Healthy People 2020 goal of 90 percent compliance for all vaccines, with the exception of rotovirus (80 percent) and HepA (85 percent), remains unattained. Healthcare providers have been cited as key to achieving a higher overall immunization rate. This makes the need to identify successful interventions to support effective immunization delivery in private practices and clinics essential.

Through two projects, NICHQ has assisted primary care practices in improving their immunization delivery process.
