Vaccination Programs: Community-Based Interventions Implemented in Combination

Description of Resource: 
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends community-based interventions implemented in combination to increase vaccinations in targeted populations. These interventions involve the use of 2 or more coordinated interventions to increase vaccination rates within a targeted population. Efforts involve partnerships between community organizations, local government, and vaccination providers to implement and coordinate 1 or more interventions to increase community demand (client reminder and recall systems, manual outreach and tracking, client or community-wide education, client incentives, client-held paper immunization records, and case management); and 1 or more interventions to enhance access to vaccination services (expanded access in health care settings, home visits, and reduced client out-of-pocket costs). Efforts may also include additional interventions directed at vaccination providers (e.g., provider assessment and feedback, provider education, and provider reminder systems).
