During the 2010 legislative session, the Idaho State Legislature adopted a new
chapter in the Idaho Code, Chapter 60, Title 41, entitled "Immunization
Assessments." The intent of the legislature was to provide funding for the Idaho
Immunization Program to continue to provide vaccines for insured Idaho children.
The new chapter creates a dedicated vaccine fund and an independent board which
is empowered to assess fees from all health carriers to fund vaccine purchases.
The Department will post additional information on the immunization survey and
assessment process as it becomes available.

Immunize Idaho Program
The Idaho Immunization program provides free vaccine to all participating
providers, education for health care providers, nursing programs, and the
general public, and maintains the statewide immunization registry (IRIS).
"People from many different areas have pulled together to implement a new and
unique system for setting and collecting assessments to promote childhood
immunization in Idaho. The first assessment payments have been received,
and the newly established system has allowed an uninterrupted supply of
childhood vaccines to Idaho providers."
