From the Field: Improving Immunization Coverage and Services at the Local Level

Oct 01, 2019 | Kim Rodgers

NACCHO recently published, From the Field: Improving Immunization Coverage and Services at the Local Level, a compendium of stories from the field that highlight local health department (LHD) immunization initiatives. The stories were written by and told from the perspective of local health department staff that participated in NACCHO’s 2017 Assessment of Local Health Department Immunization Programs and follow-up interviews. Each story highlights a local immunization challenge and the initiative implemented by the LHD to address the overarching need to increase local immunization coverage rates.

The stories include:

  • Win, Win, Win Against HPV
  • No Shot, No School! New Iowa Vaccination Law Creates Unexpected Opportunities
  • Reaching a Vulnerable Population by Reducing Barriers to Immunization Access
  • Leveraging Partnerships to Establish Immunization as an Integral Component of Adolescent Health
  • Schools Who Are Wise Immunize: Curbing Flu with School-Based Flu Clinics
  • Take the Sting Out of Vaccines with Fun Band-Aids
  • Protecting Grizzly Youth Academy Students from Flu & More
  • Collaborating to Ensure Access to Immunization Records into Adulthood
  • Breaking Down Barriers: Increasing Immunization in a Hard-to-Reach Community

With this document, NACCHO hopes to strengthen the capacity of LHDs to provide comprehensive immunization services by facilitating information exchange and peer learning. View the compendium.
