Immunization Action Plan
Connecticut’s IAP helps raise vaccination rates for children in our state. It operates in areas with the highest risk of low immunization rates and focuses on pre-school children who may not have received the vaccinations required to start school. Each IAP site has a program coordinator and most have one or more outreach workers. They work closely with local health departments, public and private immunization providers, hospitals, WIC offices, Head Start programs, schools and pre-schools, and other maternal and child health organizations that serve young children. By collaborating with these groups, the local IAP can assess the needs of the community, make and receive referrals for at-risk children, and share the latest immunization advice with parents and guardians.
