Immunization Quality Improvement for Providers


Oregon IQIP is part of CDC’s national Vaccines for Children (VFC) provider-level immunization quality improvement (QI) program. It promotes and supports provider-level strategies designed to help increase on-time vaccination of children and adolescents. IQIP is a 12-month process in which VFC providers collaborate with IQIP consultants to identify QI strategies to increase vaccine uptake by improving and enhancing vaccination workflow.

  • Schedule the next vaccination visit before the patient leaves the provider location.
  • Leverage immunization information system (IIS) to improve immunization practice.
  • Give a strong vaccine recommendation.
  • Strengthen vaccination communications.
  • Recommend HPV Series starting at age 9.
