The Childhood Immunization Initiative has a multi-pronged effort to tackle the problem of children not getting their vaccinations, including:

  • Providing funding for a pilot to find effective ways to help parents share accurate, reliable information with peers in their school communities.
  • Creating new communication tools for health care providers to talk with parents about vaccinations.
  • Increasing access to vaccinations.
  • Partnering with public health departments to develop strategies to increase vaccinations.
