Abstract

The Linn County Public Health Department collects information regarding the annual school immunization rates and coordinates with the Linn County school districts to maintain immunization rates that protect the community from vaccine-preventable diseases. As of January 2015, Foster Elementary had 91% of their students fully vaccinated and Holley Elementary had 85% of their students fully vaccinated. In order to avoid any outbreaks, school immunization rates should be about 90% or higher. The aim of this project was to improve the immunization rates among the elementary schools in Sweet Home with the efforts of the Linn County Public Health Department and the Sweet Home School District, to increase the attendance to the free school based immunization clinic that is held twice a year at the Sweet Home Junior High School, and to determine effective interventions that are specific to Sweet Home that will help improve the annual immunization rates among the schools.
