New Jersey Immunization Network

Over the past five years, outbreaks of vaccine- preventable diseases have been on the rise, in New Jersey and across the country. Science confirms the safety, effectiveness and success of vaccines in protecting the health and wellness of children and adults. The New Jersey Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (NJAAP) and its statewide pediatric membership have long championed efforts to protect children and their families from vaccine preventable disease. Targeted advocacy and educational initiatives, supported by the tireless efforts of pediatric Medical Homes from across the state, have and continue to work hand-in-hand to ensure immunization rates in New Jersey remain among the highest in the country. Additionally, The New Jersey Immunization Network (NJIN), a statewide Coalition founded by NJAAP and now co-led with the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians (NJAFP), is the preeminent pro-vaccine for preventable diseases voice in the state. The mission of this coalition, comprised of over 400 members from both the public and private sectors, is to protect the health of all individuals through timely, age-appropriate immunization against vaccine-preventable diseases by educating the public, healthcare professionals, and policy makers about vaccine safety and benefits.

Back-to-School Webinar: 2023 New Jersey Immunization Updates and Guidance

September 27, 2023


The COVID-19 pandemic caused declines in immunization coverage both nationally and in New Jersey. As a result, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is promoting the catch up of routine immunizations for children in time for the back-to-school season. New Jersey would like to use this webinar as an opportunity to promote this national campaign and to share state-specific immunization data. The webinar will begin by sharing the immunization data for the audience to see the areas of low coverage in NJ. Ways to improve vaccine access and vaccine confidence will be shared as possible solutions for restoring immunization rates to pre-pandemic levels. Utilization of the solutions presented can help to improve vaccination coverage, and ultimately help to reduce the burden of future vaccine-preventable diseases.
