The Association of Immunization Managers (AIM) was created in 1999 to enable immunization managers to work together to effectively prevent and control vaccine-preventable disease and improve immunization coverage in the United States and its territories. Immunization program managers are the public employees or officials designated by the state to direct the immunization efforts in that state. These program managers can provide training, resources, and support to ob-gyns who offer immunizations in their practice. They are a local, accessible, and knowledgeable resource for physicians. AIM is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to: Working with its partners nationwide to reduce, eliminate or eradicate vaccine preventable diseases; promoting adequate and efficient allocation of resources to immunization efforts; promoting development and implementation of sound immunization policies and programs; and providing a forum for development and dissemination of information about effective immunization programs among its members.
