What We Do

The Immunization Partnership helps individuals, physicians, and others with an interest in immunization to make smart choices about protecting our community from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Why We Do It

Every year, roughly 3 million people die from vaccine-preventable diseases, and countless more suffer life-long disabilities. We believe in preventing what's preventable.


How We Do it

Our mission is to eradicate vaccine-preventable diseases by educating the community, advocating for evidence-based public policy, and supporting immunization best practices.

Community Forums

TIP conducts community forums, or Lunch & Learns, where experts share information on current topics in immunization. While geared specifically toward front-line immunizers (nurses, medical assistants, etc.), these events are free and open to all who are interested in the topic.

Upcoming Events

Community Immunity

The Community Immunity exercise is an interactive demonstration of how one's vaccination status can contribute to how far and how quickly the flu can spread through a community.

    Governor’s disease task force should expand scope beyond Zika

Most of the discussion was centered on Zika, which is appropriate considering its link to devastating consequences for pregnant women. ...
