The mission of the Wyoming Immunization Unit is to support and promote immunization services through collaboration, education, and resources to prevent vaccine-preventable diseases in Wyoming.
The Immunization Unit manages the federal Vaccines for Children (VFC) and state Wyoming Vaccinates Important People (WyVIP) programs, which provide state and federally-purchased vaccines to participating providers.
The Immunization Unit also operates the Wyoming Immunization Registry (WyIR), a secure, confidential, Internet-based immunization database. The Immunization Unit serves as a resource to medical providers for education and clinical guidance, vaccine storage and handling, understanding immunization coverage rates, and the vaccine exemption process.
