Keeping Colorado Communities Healthy
Immunize Colorado works to protect Colorado families, schools and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases.
New! Child Care Immunization Policy Toolkit
Immunize Colorado has released a toolkit on immunization policy for Colorado child care programs to support child care administrators in their efforts to comply with state immunization laws and keep students and child care staff protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. Specifically, the toolkit aims to help child care administrators understand Colorado’s child care entry immunization requirements and their role in implementing these requirements.
As Colorado’s only statewide independent 501c(3) nonprofit organization committed to keeping Coloradans healthy through immunization, Immunize Colorado elevates the essential role vaccines play in preventing illness and promoting health for all of Colorado; we do this by building awareness for vaccines, educating health care providers, and advocating for policies that protect Coloradans with the goal of increasing vaccination rates.
Vaccines Save Lives
Vaccines avert over $400 million in hospitalization charges in Colorado each year.
Vaccines prevent over 8,600 hospitalizations among Colorado children each year.
Vaccines prevent 4 - 5 million deaths worldwide each year.
In the U.S., vaccines protect people of all ages against 17 dangerous or deadly diseases.
Supporting Vaccines For All
We believe that all groups—regardless of race, ethnicity, ability, income or other factor—deserve to have accurate information about vaccines, and reliable access to them.
