NYSACHO’s Immunization Action Plan project aims to increase and sustain immunization levels of all residents in New York State.
The Campaign to ImmuNYze all New Yorkers is a vaccination initiative of NYSACHO, created to heighten awareness of vaccines and the need to immunize throughout life—from infancy through senior years. Our goal is to unite patients, parents, providers and campaign partners around this important issue, as well as offer reliable, scientific-based immunization information on adult, teen and child vaccinations and vaccine-preventable diseases.
The Vaccines For Children (VFC) program is a federally funded program that provides vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay.
