The Philadelphia Immunization Program is part of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health Division of Disease Control.
Our program is funded by the federal government to oversee the government purchase and distribution of vaccines to local healthcare providers.Â We monitor the use of the vaccines, reporting of use by providers, and we work to keep Philadelphia’s residents healthy by increasing vaccination coverage rates.
The Philadelphia Immunization Program is one of 64 U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funded program areas charged with the mission to prevent vaccine-preventable diseases and increase the immunization coverage levels among infants, children, adolescents and adults in Philadelphia.
We oversee the following programs:
- The PhilaVax IIS
- Vaccines for Children
- Vaccines for Adults At Risk
- Community Flu Clinics
- Immunization resource projects:
