Recommendations to Improve Vaccination Rates

While immunization issues are complex, Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota has outlined several ways to get Minnesota back on track.

  • Immunization registries. All clinics in Minnesota should use MIIC, the Minnesota Immunization Information Connection, so that there is a centralized repository of information to help health care providers keep track of a child's immunization history, especially when they change clinics.
  • Increase "up-to-date" immunization status for all Minnesota children. This would entail promoting on-time vaccination through the immunization schedule, making sure parents bring children in for well-child exams and vaccinations and reminding providers to reduce "missed opportunities" to vaccinate.
  • Enhance communication with parents and providers. Better communications with patients and providers about the importance of vaccines will go a long way to dispel myths and misconceptions about their dangers. We must help prepare our pediatricians to bring up and answer concerns about vaccines.
