Our mission

The mission of the Utah Department of Health Immunization Program is to improve the health of Utah’s citizens through vaccinations to reduce illness, disability, and death from vaccine-preventable infections. We seek to promote a healthy lifestyle that emphasizes immunizations across the lifespan by partnering with the 13 local health departments throughout the state and other community partners.

From providing educational materials for the general public and healthcare providers to assessing clinic immunization records to collecting immunization data through online reporting systems, the Utah Immunization Program recognizes the importance of immunizations as part of a well-balanced healthcare approach.
