Wyoming Immunization Reports
Each year, the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) releases a recommended immunization schedule for childhood vaccination. These recommendations are supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). For each vaccine-preventable disease, there are particular rules and guidelines in the administration of the vaccine that, if followed, result in the optimal immune response in the patient. If these guidelines are not adhered to, in some cases, a patient may be left unprotected. This can include scenarios where the child was administered a dose of vaccine incorrectly (invalid dose), or those who never receive the vaccine at all.
