Protecting People Vaccine Policy to Practice

Projects Overview

The team has conducted multiple health services research studies on barriers to childhood and adult vaccinations, several randomized vaccine trials, randomized cluster trials of interventions to increase vaccination rates (e.g., studies of 20-24 primary care practices each), and before-after studies of interventions to increase immunization rates and reduce disparities including cost-effectiveness modeling of programs to eliminate disparities.
