A variety of organizations work with the Oregon Immunization Program to protect the people of Oregon from vaccine-preventable disease, from assisting with outreach or hosting clinics to providing expert insight on policy.
Immunization School/Facility Law Advisory Committee
This committee advises the Oregon Immunization Program on the laws requiring immunizations to protect children and students attending our schools, children's facilities and colleges/universities against vaccine-preventable diseases. The Committee makes recommendations regarding proposed changes, implementation, and maintenance of immunization statutes and rules.
Immunization Policy Advisory Team (IPAT)
The Oregon Immunization Policy Advisory Team, established in 1999, advises the Oregon Public Health Immunization Program on the development, prioritization and implementation of immunization policy issues. Composed of 18 voting members who are experts in immunization and/or policy fields and non-voting members from the Oregon Health Authority, IPAT strives to facilitate a sound, collaborative decision-making process around immunization issues facing Oregonians.
