Immunization and Vaccines for Children

ID: CDC-RFA-IP19-19010101SUPP24 • Type: Posted

Description

The National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) announces the availability of funds for 19-1901 Immunization and Vaccines for Children recipients to enhance their jurisdiction-based immunization information system (IIS) with a new VTrckS application programming interface (VTrckS API). The API enables jurisdictional programs to submit vaccine order files and support data directly from their jurisdiction-based immunization information systems. This automation increases the efficiency of vaccine order submission and reduces the burden on jurisdictional program staff. The purpose of this competitive funding is to allow jurisdictional programs using awardee-developed platforms to compete for funding needed to enhance their jurisdiction-based immunization information systems to utilize the new VTrckS API.
