“The Indiana Immunization Coalition exists to reduce the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases through immunization education, advocacy, promotion, and statewide collaborative partnerships.”
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.
