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 – 2014
Improving childhood immunization rates is one of the top seven health improvement points 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 according to the MaineHealth Childhood Immunizations Program Clinical Improvement Plan in 2014. 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 as many of them as possible on time according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended immunization schedule.
In acknowledgement of their success, the following practices received recognition plaques for their offices and announcements were placed in local news publications.
Congratulations are in order for these MaineHealth practices. Please join us in celebrating their great work by mentioning their success at your next appointment (if you’re a patient) or consider making one of these practices your medical home if you are currently searching for a new healthcare provider!
