The goal of the New Britain Immunization Program is to ensure that all children are appropriately immunized by age two. The program provides education about vaccine preventable diseases and outreach services for immunizations. We work with health care providers to monitor the rates of immunization in the city of New Britain, CT. We also work in conjunction with the State of Connecticut Immunization Program to make available educational materials and conferences that enhance professional competence in the area of vaccine preventable diseases. The New Britain Immunization Program also tracks children thought to be behind on immunizations and provides assistance to these families in obtaining immunizations for their children.
