The GVO program will enable Columbus Public Health to ensure that critical elements of vaccine are provided and the vaccine delivery system are adequate; to establish and maintain a high level of awareness and demand for immunizations by parents, particularly racial/ethnic minority parents and other under-served population groups; and to accurately measure the ability of local vaccine providers to raise immunizations levels in children under the age of two toward the goal of 90% coverage.
