The Immunize Kansas Coalition (IKC) is a group of dozens of organizations and hundreds of individuals with diverse perspectives - healthcare providers, health departments, researchers, healthcare payers, advocacy groups, nonprofits, school nurses, community members, parents, and more - all working together to improve vaccination rates and protect Kansans from vaccine-preventable diseases.
