Vaccinations have significantly decreased the number of annual cases of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases. Yet, people across Indiana are still getting sick…even dying…from these diseases every year. Thus, in 2003, a team of Hoosiers, passionate about decreasing the spread of vaccine-preventable disease in Indiana, got together and formed the Indiana Immunization Coalition.
Since the beginning, IIC has served as an advocate for Indiana families, health care providers, and local & state health departments striving to increase vaccination rates in Indiana. Through education, advocacy, and collaboration with public and private groups, IIC is on the front lines of reducing vaccine-preventable diseases in Indiana.
