Immunization Registries: Reaching the Healthy People 2010 Goal

Healthy People 2010 establishes a goal of having 95% of all children <6 years of age enrolled in a population-based immunization registry. This session will: 1) describe the current status of registries in the United States, 2) report on the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of an urban registry (Boston), 3) describe efforts to integrate an immunization registry with a lead poisoning information system in a large city (New York), 4) describe the development and operation of a fully operational state-wide immunization registry (Oregon), and 5) conclude with discussion of the prospects for meeting the Healthy People 2010 goal
