Northwest Tribal Immunization Project

The NPAIHB Immunization Program works with all IHS and tribal clinics in Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Services offered to all sites include gathering data through RPMS on a quarterly basis to assisting in procuring vaccine for clinics who have either had their orders cancelled or have exhausted their supply. We have record or near record low levels of vaccine-preventable childhood diseases in the United States, but that does not mean they have disappeared. The NPAIHB Immunization Program works to ensure that children, especially infants and young children receive recommended immunizations on time.

The NPAIHB Immunization Program participates in a National Immunization Coordinators group. This group consists of Immunization Coordinator’s of the various Epicenter and Indian Health Service Area Program Managers. Conferences calls are arranged quarterly to share information which is widely disseminated and shared.

Goals

The goals of NPAIHB’s Immunization Program include:

  • Increase ways to access information about preventable childhood diseases
  • Improve health and well-being for infants and young children
  • Reduce levels for vaccine-preventable childhood diseases
