Children’s Access to Immunizations and Preventive Care
As adults, we all understand the benefits of being healthy and recognize the importance of vaccines and preventative care for our overall health. Preventive care can look different for many ages and genders, so what does that look like for our youth?
Childhood vaccinations and preventive care often detect and prevent conditions and diseases in their earlier, more treatable stages, significantly reducing the risk of potential illness, disability, early death, and expensive medical care.
IYI’s recently published Data Report: Children’s Access to Immunizations and Preventive Care, highlights state data, as well as examines barriers to obtaining vaccines and preventive care, the history of medical discrimination, and provides insight into how to leverage data on the local, state, and national level.
