• CDC Immunization Action Plan

    Under the direction of Chuck Schubert, MD, the CDC Immunization Action Plan is a joint effort with the City of Cincinnati Health Department and the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center Emergency Medicine Division.

    Children identified through the Emergency Division and subsequently tracked by the Immunization Action Plan team are encouraged to return to their primary care providers to get needed vaccines. When the child is severely delayed in getting their recommended vaccines, they may receive the immunizations either in the Emergency Department or from the Immunization Action Plan nurse outreach team in the home. These children are tracked until they complete all of their preschool immunizations.

    The database has grown to include more than 10,000 children. This program is unique and well-recognized by pediatric emergency medicine programs across the country.
