Calling all Kansas providers working to improve immunization rates! The Immunize Kansas Coalition (IKC) is looking to provide recognition awards for local quality improvement activities that support evidence-based practices and measurable increases in Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), meningococcal, and Tdap vaccination rates among adolescents in Kansas.
Who is eligible? These innovative grants (limited to Kansas only) are open to the following four categories, with one award winner being selected from each category:
IKC is recognizing these activities because Kansas adolescents rank 41st in the nation for HPV vaccination rates among adolescents 13-17 years old, according to the National Immunization Survey. Kansas also ranks 45th for meningococcal vaccination rates.
Four awards, $5,000 each, will be given following the successful demonstration of an immunization rate increase in a clinical practice setting. Providers interested in the recognition awards must register their intent by November 30, 2017. To view the full proposal and timelines, please click here.
