Unit:  Immunization Services

 

 

Program Description:

The purpose of Immunization Services is to prevent the occurrence and transmission of diseases that are preventable through immunizations. The Unit educates health care providers, professional organizations, and other groups and agencies about the use of vaccines. It reports on vaccine-preventable diseases and serious illness associated with the receipt of vaccines. It monitors outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases. The Unit distributes vaccines to public health departments through private Vaccines for Children (VFC) certified providers for direct delivery to providers.

 

The Unit conducts annual surveys to determine children's immunization status and to validate the accuracy of school and facility reporting. The Unit certifies physicians and approves clinics as Uniform Stamp and Yellow Fever Centers. It also provides technical assistance about vaccine and immunization programs to public and private providers.

 

It trains public and private providers to use the Vaccines for Children program (VFC) and the CASA-based Assessment, Feedback, Incentives and eXchange (AFIX) activities in their clinics. The Unit operates Oregon Immunization ALERT, a statewide child immunization information system that tracks and links children's vaccinations provided by public and private providers.

 

Immunization Services also works with advisory groups and coalitions to promote activities that minimize the occurrence and transmission of diseases that are preventable through immunizations. It coordinates the efforts of the Oregon Partnership to Immunize Children, a collaboration of health care, insurance, business, and citizen groups. The group operates an information clearinghouse and does marketing, outreach, and education. The Unit also facilitates the Adult Immunization Coalition that supports pneumococcal vaccination and the annual influenza vaccine campaign. In addition, Immunization Services produces informational publications such as the Newborn Handbooks that are provided to all hospitals for distribution to new parents.

Unit:  Oral Health

 

 

Program Description:

The Oral Health Unit seeks to improve the oral health of women, children and families through assessment, policy development, and assurance to Oregon residents.

It also works to decrease the number of adults with untreated dental decay and to increase the percent of people served by community fluoridated water systems.

 

The Oral Health Unit coordinates programs such as the statewide school-based King Fluoride Program that provided fluoride rinse and tablets to schoolchildren living in areas with less than optimal fluoridated drinking water. Other programs include the Early Childhood Caries Prevention Program with a focus on pregnant women and children ages two and under and a State Action for Oral Health that focuses on development of a dental surveillance system, community water fluoridation, and dental sealants. In addition, it helps staff the Early Childhood Cavities Prevention Coalition and provides assistance to local health departments, Head Start programs, and other partners by promoting preventive health activities, providing oral health education, and gathering, interpreting, and disseminating oral health information.
