Webinar //


Dec 09 2015, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST


Immunization Information Systems are key to maintaining and improving vaccination coverage and reducing vaccine preventable diseases in the United States. Integrating the current IIS infrastructure to exchange information across federal, state and local jurisdictions will lead to more effective surveillance, better immunization planning and ultimately healthier communities.

This webinar provides an opportunity for public health professionals, including immunization program managers, IIS program staff, public health attorneys, and privacy officers to learn about state-specific issues related to IIS interjurisdictional sharing, the template MOU, and possible implementation steps.
