In 1994, Michigan learned that immunization rates in the state were the lowest in the nation. In response, a partnership of public and private sector organizations – the Alliance for Immunizations in Michigan (AIM) – was formed to focus on a broad spectrum of immunization issues in Michigan.
Given the low vaccination rates in Michigan at that time, the initial focus of AIM was to emphasize provider education in an effort to reduce missed opportunities to immunize. The AIM coalition’s concerted efforts were integrated into what became known as the AIM Provider Tool Kit, a comprehensive resource for immunization management, patient education, as well as other high-quality information sources.
Today, the AIM coalition continues its focus on improving all facets of immunization services in Michigan. AIM’s mission is to promote immunizations across the lifespan through a coalition of health care professionals and agencies.
AIM fully supports the recommendations put forth by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The AIM Endorsement of ACIP Schedules is a great resource to utilize in your office to help communicate the importance of following the recommended vaccination schedule. If you would like to add your organization’s logo to the endorsement piece please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
AIM also encourages following the standards of practice for children, adolescents, and adults.
