The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) submitted a decision item to the Joint Budget Committee (JBC) to provide increased funding to enhance the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS). During the Feb.19 figure setting, the JBC staff not only supported the request but also asked for additional funding to advance the process underway to allow CHP+ vaccine to be purchased off of the Vaccines for Children (VFC) federal contract, saving the state significant costs.
