Vax Maine Kids
When Maine families have vaccination questions, they turn to Vax Maine Kids. We are doctors, nurses, public health advocates, policy makers – and parents. We know when parents get real facts about vaccines, they get their kids vaccinated. But with so much conflicting information out there, it’s hard to know whom to trust.
Maine parents can trust Vax Maine Kids for local, accurate, evidence-based vaccination information, vaccine news, and helpful vaccine resources.
Vax Maine Kids also connects you with other Maine parents trying to make the right choices for their kids.
MaineHealth Awards Practices for Achieving High Childhood Immunization Rates – 2015
Improving childhood immunization rates is one of the top seven health priorities for the MaineHealth system. Vax Maine Kids and MaineHealth are honored to recognize practices that achieved a rating of “good,” “better,” or “best” on childhood immunization rates in 2016 according to the MaineHealth Childhood Immunizations Program Clinical Improvement Plan. These ratings are in accordance with the Maine Health Management Coalition’s Pathways to Excellence (PTE) Program on clinical outcomes for pediatric preventative services, which ranks practices based on state and national benchmarks for childhood immunizations. The practices that earned this distinction demonstrated their commitment to keeping Maine’s children healthy by immunizing them on time according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended immunization schedule. Please join us in celebrating their success! Congratulations to:
