The Contractor will assist CPH in fulfilling the deliverables in the 2022-2023 GVO grant to achieve and maintain 90% vaccination coverage levels for universally recommended childhood vaccines.

Services to be provided include targeted immunization services to address immunization coverage disparities; conduct immunization provider education and assessments for practices throughout Franklin County in order to promote immunization best practices; conduct School Immunization Assurance; recruit, enroll, and educate providers on the State Immunization Registry (ImpactSIIS); and carry out Perinatal hepatitis B Case Identification and Follow-up.
