The U.S. Virgin Islands Immunization program serves as a regulatory component of the department of health that aims to prevent and reduce the risk and incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases for all Virgin Islanders. The goal of the immunization program is to prevent, promote and protect through education and collaboration to eliminate vaccine-preventable diseases in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The program provides access to vaccines for Vaccines for Children-enrolled health care providers at no cost, enforce school and child care immunization regulations, provide immunization education and training for health care providers and the general public, coordinate surveillance and control efforts for vaccine-preventable diseases, promote vaccine safety, and develop effective partnerships.
Vision – To reduce the risk of vaccine preventable disease by increasing the number of persons up-to-date with age/occupation/lifestyle appropriate vaccinations, decreasing the number of vaccine exemptions waivers, and making it law that any and all vaccinations administered within this territory be entered into the Virgin Islands Immunization Registry System (VIIRS), a web-based registry system.
