Immunizations Intervention Strategies

girl getting a shot

The immunization intervention strategies are described separately below. Each of these strategies works best when used with other strategies. For example, changing knowledge, attitudes and beliefs will do little to increase immunization rates if there is limited access to vaccines in communities.

The Immunization in Different Populations section gives suggestions for how to work with different groups of individuals. This may include paying attention to how different groups think about immunizations, based on their values and beliefs. An intervention works best when language, reading level and cultural barriers are addressed (see Cultural Competence for more information).
