Hawaii Immunization Coalition (HIC) Update- May 2023
Posted in HIC Updates Comments Off on Hawaii Immunization Coalition (HIC) Update- May 2023
2023 State of the ImmUnion Report
Every year, Vaccinate Your Family (VYF) writes and distributes a State of the ImmUnion report to help examine the strength of our country’s defenses against vaccine-preventable diseases, and what we can do, as public health advocates and policymakers, to make our country stronger and more resilient in the face of emerging health threats.
Take a moment to ask for strong support of vaccines and to share the most recent State of the ImmUnion report by using VYF’s form to send quick and easy emails to your Members of Congress.
You can also share the report along with one of our 2023 state fact sheets that will help your lawmakers understand the importance of strong vaccination policies in Hawaiʻi.
Highlights from the 2023 State of the ImmUNION report:
- The success of COVID-19 vaccines.
- The win for people with Medicare and Medicaid now that vaccines are, or soon will be, covered.
- Gaps in programming and funding to support the vaccination of uninsured adults and children.
- Costs associated with vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks that occurred between 2017 and 2022.
