An immunization coalition is a network of agencies and individuals dedicated to sensible disease prevention and healthy communities.
Prevention looks different here in Oregon and successful interventions will be a reflection of those same unique values, strengths, and independence. Immunize Oregon coalition works to address local priorities by including partners across the state to improve health for everyone. Our role is to advise health professionals, policy makers, parents, and the community on the current science and clinical best practices regarding immunizations.
Immunize Oregon is a network of community members, health professionals, and partner agencies with a common goal of preventing disease and improving the quality of life for all Oregonians. No participant is compensated or otherwise financially benefits by involvement with the coalition. Immunize Oregon is committed to transparency and holds itself to high standards regarding financial conflicts of interest. Donations are politely declined, new partnerships are gladly welcomed. We are a coalition of parents, grandparents, religious leaders, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, public health professionals, direct service providers, researchers, and clinical educators. There are currently over 400 participants in the Immunize Oregon coalition, representing a variety of immunization stakeholders statewide. We believe partnership is key to prevention.
