State of the State's Immunizations: A Report on Colorado's Vaccine Protection for Its Communities
The first of its kind in over 15 years, the State of the State's Immunizations report draws on new school and child care data made available by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, as well as national, county and hospital-level data to provide an analysis of the state of immunization coverage in Colorado. The report examines vaccination rates among children, costs associated with vaccine-preventable disease, challenges to boosting immunization uptake, the role of immunization systems and technology in ensuring adequate immunization rates, and the impact of recent policy changes. It also offers opportunities and recommendations for immunization stakeholders to address vaccination gaps to better protect Colorado children and communities.
