AAP Vaccine Uptake Grant Success

Posted on August 06, 2021

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) funded nine chapters (including Maine) to participate in the Supporting Pediatric Healthcare Providers to Increase Vaccination Uptake project via cooperative agreement funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The goal of the project was to identify and support the immunization program needs of pediatric healthcare clinicians in practice by building their capacity to ensure high immunization coverage levels for vaccine preventable diseases, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, through a (1) needs assessment of pediatric healthcare clinicians, with 560 respondents across 9 chapters. The final report is available for review.
