Association of Immunization Managers

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. For additional information, resources, and training materials, please visit ImmunizationManagers.org

The Association of Immunization Managers (AIM) is pleased to announce the launch of the interactive VaccineFactsandPolicy.org website
 
The Vaccine Facts and Policy (VFAP) project is making available, for the first time in one location, an expansive compilation of detailed immunization data from every major jurisdiction in the United States.
The project website, www.VaccineFactsAndPolicy.org, includes information within five major topic areas related to immunization law and policy including: demographics and rates, fiscal environment, law and policy, strategies and initiatives, and the structure of immunization programs. Users may customize their experience by searching the data by jurisdiction or topic.
 
By making this interactive and well-referenced database freely available, the project seeks to enhance the ability of immunization stakeholders, healthcare providers, the vaccine industry, policymakers, legislators, advocates, and consumers to access consistent information and work together in pursuit of higher immunization coverage against vaccine-preventable diseases.
 
The project is a partnership of the Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University (GW), the Association of Immunization Managers (AIM), and the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC). This unique partnership builds upon the strengths of each organization, enhancing the value and functionality of the project.
