The Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition (CCIC) is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to keeping Colorado kids healthy by increasing childhood vaccination coverage.
As Colorado’s only statewide nonprofit dedicated to children’s immunization, CCIC elevates the essential role vaccines play in preventing illness and promoting health for all of Colorado.
Our mission: The Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition strategically mobilizes diverse partners and families to advance children’s health through immunizations.
We fulfill our mission by:
- Educating professionals – CCIC’s provider education services strengthens Colorado’s health care work force by increasing knowledge of clinical guidelines, data, emerging research and other crucial and timely information and resources on immunizations.
- Strengthening and mobilizing Colorado’s childhood immunization projects through coalition building - CCIC’s coalition building and engagement strategies leverage the collective voice of diverse children’s health partners to ensure that CCIC leads the state in systems-level support, infrastructure and resources for children’s immunization.
- Advocating for better access to vaccines for all children – CCIC’s public policy agenda engages coalition members and policy makers to identify and advance solutions to challenges in Colorado’s vaccine financing, access and delivery system.
- Sharing vaccine information with healthcare providers, parents, the media and organizations across the country - CCIC’s community outreach efforts, including the award-winning ImmunizeforGood.com and VacunalosporSuBien.com campaigns, build awareness among English and Spanish-speaking parents about the safety and importance of immunization.
We do all of this without accepting funding from vaccine manufacturers and distributors.
