Public Provider Immunization Assessments in Indiana
2000 Assessment Results
For the past several years, the Indiana State Department of Health Immunization Program has completed assessments in each of the 94 local health departments and in a majority of non-health department public providers throughout Indiana. With each successive assessment cycle, findings demonstrate a gradual improvement of immunization coverage levels among two-year old children seen by these providers. The majority of public providers in Indiana have immunized more than 85% of their two-year old patients. Such findings show that these providers are working diligently to help achieve what should be an immunization program's primary goal: to reduce the incidence of vaccine-preventable disease.
