About Us: Immunization Assistance Program (IAP)

The Immunization Assistance Program (IAP) is part of the Family Health Division in Public Health Services for the Orange County Health Care Agency.

IAP assesses and supports immunization infrastructure in County public health clinics, community clinics, schools, and day care centers. IAP is a member and supporter of the  Orange County Immunization Coalition (OCIC).

IAP participates in State and Federal programs including:

  • Vaccines for Children (VFC) – A Federal program offering vaccines at no/reduced cost for eligible children through VFC-enrolled doctors. Vaccinating on time means healthier children, families and communities.

    Find out if your child qualifies for VFC vaccines: www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/vfc/parents/qa-detailed.html

  • Perinatal Hepatitis B Prevention Program – The County of Orange participates in a statewide perinatal hepatitis B prevention and case management program for infants born to mothers who are carriers of the Hepatitis B virus. The program coordinates the testing and immunization of susceptible family members and household contacts.
     
    Contact the Perinatal Hepatitis B Coordinator at (714) 834-7888 or visit the State program website for additional information.

  • California Immunization Registry (CAIR) – The California Immunization Registry (CAIR) is a free service available to all health care providers who give immunizations, colleges, schools, and day care centers who have immunization requirements for school entrance. Immunization registries are confidential, computerized information systems enabling providers to record, update, and access up-to-date immunization documents for their patients. 

    Along with immunization registries, together we can ensure patient’s vaccinations are up to date, minimize missed vaccination opportunities, and help our patient’s stay healthy and disease-free. For more information about CAIR, please visit: www.cairweb.org/.
