The South Dakota Immunization Program aims to protect all South Dakotans against vaccine preventable disease by increasing immunization coverage levels of children and adults.
The program provides vaccine, materials, training, and support to both public and private immunization providers throughout the state. It increases public awareness of immunizations by providing educational materials to all vaccine providers and working in partnership with local and statewide coalitions. The program also monitors immunization levels of children in South Dakota and is involved with vaccine preventable disease surveillance and outbreak control.
Within the program is the South Dakota Immunization Information System (SDIIS), a computer software system that allows health care providers to share immunization records.
