The Foundation's program, All Kids Count: Establishing Immunization Monitoring and Follow-up Systems, was designed to support the development and implementation of monitoring and follow-up systems to improve and sustain access to immunizations for preschool children.This is one of 23 one-year planning grants under the All Kids Count program. The main goal of this program is to establish immunization monitoring and follow-up systems in an effort to increase immunization rates among preschool children and reduce rates of illness, disability, and death from vaccine preventable diseases. The main objective of this planning grant is to develop a services system which will enable Alameda County to reach a 90 percent immunization rate for children under 5 years of age. A coalition will be formed with representatives from government, business and the health care industry. Six subcommittees will work to develop a coherent plan to: (1) create an immunization registry which links existing data systems and tracks the immunization status of mothers, and infants; (2) identify service gaps and barriers; (3) create new immunization systems to improve access; and (4) develop a monitored data collection system which will be used to advocate for service enhancements at the public policy level.
