IMPROVING IMMUNIZATION RATES
JOIN THE NEW JERSEY IMMUNIZATION NETWORK (NJIN)!
Join a state-wide network of vaccine advocates. The mission of the New Jersey Immunization Network is to protect the health of all individuals through timely, age-appropriate immunization against vaccine-preventable diseases by educating the public, healthcare professionals, and policymakers about vaccine safety and benefits.
Patient Education Videos for Your Practice!
Sponsored through a grant from the NJ Department of Health, NJAFP has created a series of patient education videos designed to dispel the myths surrounding vaccines. These short videos are free to download and use in your waiting room or exam room. You may also request a DVD if your office does not have an Internet-enabled TV.
New Jersey Immunization Information Network (NJIIS)
Did you know that the NJIIS is a lifespan registry and can accept immunization information on New Jerseyans of any age? Through NJIIS you can obtain a complete and accurate immunization history for a new or continuing patient; produce immunization records, reduce paperwork, manage your vaccine inventory and much more. The Maternal and Child Health Consortia also provides free training to health care providers and their staff on using the NJIIS.
