IIS Supplemental Funding: Immunization information systems (IISs) are confidential, population-based computerized databases that record all vaccine doses administered by participating providers to persons residing within a given geographic area. At the point of clinical care, an IIS can provide consolidated patient immunization histories for the provider to use in determining appropriate vaccinations. At the population level, an IIS provides aggregate data on vaccinations to: (1) Guide public health actions such as prioritization within population subgroups with low vaccination rates. (2) Identify providers with low immunization coverage. (3) Monitor immunization rates over time to identify trends and areas for improvement. (4) Ensure ongoing program quality improvement. (5) Support routine program activities such as vaccine inventory and ordering. (6) Support emergency preparedness activities. Illinios' IIS, I-CARE, will be updated to help better assist both providers and the population at large in ensuring that all vaccinations are captured, correct, and available when needed.
Support the Vaccination of Recently Displaced Ukrainians Supplemental Funding: To address vaccine-preventable disease in the United States, IL is working to support vaccination to prevent importation of diseases such as measles and polio which have been eliminated in the United States. They are also working to create and/or procure linguistically and culturally appropriate health education and communications to address vaccine hesitancy in the Ukrainian community as well as work with other entities to reach out to these populations. This funding will support the purchase of adult IPV vaccine and operational costs to implement vaccination activities for this population.
