Immunizations: Immunization Coalitions in Wisconsin
Immunization coalitions educate the public and health care workers about vaccines. There are coalition groups all over the state. These groups can focus on a specific local community, county, or region.
Members meet on a regular basis. They use evidence based on science to:
- Raise immunization rates across all age groups.
- Decrease the spread of diseases that can be prevented by vaccines.
- Improve the overall health of the community.
Resources for coalitions
It’s important for immunization coalitions to set goals they can measure for success. You can use the following:
- Federal goals set by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services—Healthy People 2030.
- Guidance set by the state—Healthiest Wisconsin 2020: State Health Plan.
The Community Guide can help you achieve the goals you set. It gives a summary of efforts that promote health and prevent disease. It explains what efforts are effective, efficient, and achievable. The guide also tells you which interventions have strong or weak evidence. This can help you focus your resources on interventions that work.
