State of the ImmUnion Report: 2021 Vaccine Policy Priorities
Feb 23, 2021

Today, Vaccinate Your Family released our annual State of the ImmUnion report, examining the federal policies necessary to protect our country against deadly vaccine-preventable diseases including COVID-19. We have used this year’s report to highlight the critical importance of several policy priorities, namely:

  • A tangible commitment to addressing both social determinants of health and systemic medical racism.
  • Significant funding to improve public health infrastructure. The funds must support states, territories, large cities AND tribal nations and must be flexible for use on a wide range of activities including vaccine purchase, staffing, immunization information systems, and communication campaigns.
  • A student loan repayment program for any person who commits to two years of working in the public health sector.
  • Uniformity in the ways Medicaid, Medicare and CHIP programs cover vaccines for their patients.
  • Education campaigns to increase confidence in the safety and effectiveness of vaccines.
