Who we are
The coalition was established in April 1999. It's members include representatives from the New York State Department of Health, Western New York County Departments of Health, health maintenance organizations, insurance companies, vaccine manufacturers and home health care companies.
Our main focus
The main focus of the coalition has been to increase awareness regarding the importance of adult immunizations in an effort to minimize vaccine preventable diseases. The coalition is here to help our fellow health care providers in promoting good health in the eight counties of Western New York. We can provide vaccine order information and the availability of public flu and pneumonia clinics.
