The Oregon Immunization Program (OIP) is using the ALERT Immunization Information System (ALERT IIS) to report on seasonal influenza uptake across the state. As a synopsis, ALERT IIS receives both child and adult immunization reports from the majority of Oregon healthcare providers and payors. Based on last year’s influenza season, OIP estimates that ALERT IIS is capturing 75% to 80% of all influenza immunizations given in Oregon.
