An Innovative Approach for Improving Childhood Immunization Rates in Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson Counties
Oregon Health Authority data demonstrated that a significant proportion of children in some central Oregon communities did not receive all recommended vaccines by age 2, leaving the child and the community at increased risk for disease outbreaks. To protect children and decrease the risk of disease outbreak in the region, the central Oregon Regional Immunization Rate Improvement Project (IRIP) was launched in April 2016. The project's goal was to increase immunization rates of Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson County 2-year-olds by implementing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s AFIX program in coordinated care organization (CCO)-participating clinics over a 3-year period.
