Immunize Colorado

A nonprofit organization

Immunize Colorado strategically mobilizes diverse partners and families to advance the health of Coloradans through immunizations.


"Immunize Colorado is an invaluable asset to our community. IC continually strives to increase access to vaccines for all children and works with health professionals and the community to share the latest information about vaccines through education, coalition building, and community outreach. As an immunologist, educator, and mom I am proud to be part of such an important organization."

At Immunize Colorado, we work to protect Colorado families, schools, and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases. Immunize Colorado works with health care providers, public health departments, businesses, policy makers, and community organizations to fulfill our mission. By focusing on six programming areas – coalition building, community outreach, provider education, data translation, free and low-cost immunization partnerships, and public policy – the coalition leverages the strengths and resources of our members and community partners to maximize the effectiveness of our efforts.

Background Statement

Immunize Colorado was first formed in 1991 in response to the alarming fact that only about 50 percent of children in our state were adequately immunized. A group of concerned physicians, insurance providers, parents, and state officials met to strategize and develop a plan to improve and sustain childhood immunization rates in Colorado. As part of that strategy, the Colorado Children's Immunization Coalition incorporated as a 501c(3) nonprofit organization in 1999. In 2020, the Colorado Children's Immunization Coalition changed our name to Immunize Colorado to renew and reinforce the organization's commitment to protecting Coloradans across the lifespan from vaccine-preventable diseases. Since its inception, Immunize Colorado has served as the only statewide independent nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting children, families, and the Colorado community from vaccine-preventable disease. As part of our promise to not benefit financially from the programs and services we promote, Immunize Colorado does not accept any funding from vaccine manufacturers or distributors.
