By Gianfranco Pezzino, M.D., M.P.H. | July 07, 2008

This report and issue brief detail potential barriers to improving Kansas" childhood immunization rate and provide recommendations to policymakers, providers, parents and others. The recommendations include establishing incentive and education programs to increase private provider participation, the accelerated implementation of an immunization registry to better track vaccinations and help providers manage vaccine inventories, and initiatives to lower the costs and administrative burdens associated with immunizations. The report is part of the Immunize Kansas Kids (IKK) program, a collaboration among more than 30 stakeholder organizations that has as its goal increasing the immunization rate in Kansas to 90 percent.
