Presented by Paul Gillenwater, MPH
Data Unit Manager, Immunization Branch, CDPHE
This educational seminar is being presented for school and child care personnel, healthcare providers, policy makers, educators, and stakeholders interested in immunization policy, administration and public health, or simply interested in immunizations and protecting our community from vaccine-preventable disease.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has collected and published reported 2017 – 2018 school and child care immunization and exemption rates. The passage of the Colorado Board of Health rule 6 CCR 1009-2 requires public, private and parochial schools that enroll students in K-12th grade, as well as preschools, child care centers and Head Starts licensed for 10 or more children, to report their vaccination data to CDPHE annually. Paul Gillenwater, the Data Unit Manager for the Immunization Branch, will be touring this year’s data set and dashboards and discussing overall themes and statistics. He will also provide technical support on the immunization data reporting process for school and child care personnel responsible for reporting and discuss potential future changes and updates.
This presentation will:
- Outline the school and child care immunization reporting process
- Analyze the current vaccine trends and coverage levels for the state of Colorado
- Describe changes in this year’s dashboards and data visualizations
- Provide expert resources to answer questions and provide guidance on required reporting
Jessica Cataldi, MD, Department of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado Denver, will be presenting the results of her recent survey which sought to determine the impact of publicly available vaccination rates on parental school and child care choice.
