The Center for Health Care Strategies, Inc. recently highlighted the work that RI is doing to improve pediatric immunization rates through its cross-agency strategy

“States may consider looking to RI, which implemented a number of strategies to boost immunization rates and increase pediatric primary care engagement.”

RI’s efforts to boost immunization rates include: (1) Governor Gina Raimondo’s establishment of a COVID-19 Pediatric Advisory Council to encourage stakeholder engagement and create shared priorities across the state; (2) a requirement that the state’s MCOs submit plans for improving immunization rates and biweekly data reports; and (3) an immunization learning collaborative, offered by the Care Transformation Collaborative of RI and financed by the Rhode Island Foundation's COVID-19 Response Fund and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Rhode Island.
