Award Description: The North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) is seeking a grant to support immunization program activities in an effort to increase the number of children and adults vaccinated against vaccine-preventable diseases. Objectives for this grant are in line with the goals and objectives outlined in the original 2008 Immunization Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). Operations funding is being requested to obtain forecaster and reminder/recall capabilities for the North Dakota Immunization information System. The forecaster will notify immunization providers about immunizations that are due or past due for their patients. Reminder/recall will allow providers to send out reminders to patients about upcoming immunizations that are due or recall patients who are past due for immunizations. Funding is also requested to hold a statewide immunization conference in 2010 in an effort to educate immunization providers, which will in turn increase immunization rates. The NDDoH would like to use this funding to conduct a statewide television and radio campaign geared towards parents, educating them about the importance of immunizations and when immunizations are recommended. Finally, the NDDoH would like to award grants to a select number of local public health units to incentivize the creation or enhancement of local immunization coalitions. The NDDoH will comply with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) reporting requirements as outlined in ARRA FOA Section VI.3 and VI.4 and Appendix A. Program staff will submit quarterly reports to Health and Human Services and post on Recovery.gov ten days after the end of each calendar quarter, starting October 2009. The NDDoH will also participate in monthly calls with Centers For Disease Control and Prevention project officers and submit annual reports as required, starting October 2009.
