How We Work Together

In 2013 Vaccine Ambassadors became members of the NCIC. Vaccines Ambassadors works with the NCIC and its partners to address local and global needs regarding immunization services. The group shares educational and scientific information on issues relating to infectious diseases and immunizations. In 2014, Vaccine Ambassadors, NCIC, and the Duke Interdisciplinary Social Innovators (DISI) collaborated on a project to identify immunization coverage by North Carolina counties (100), recommended strategies for healthcare providers to increase immunization rates, and developed a database generator tool, which created a snapshot of county immunization data presented in a graphic format.
