The Immunization Program aims to prevent the introduction and spread of vaccine preventable communicable diseases by increasing and maintaining high immunization coverage, expanding access to vaccines, and enforcing of public health immunization laws.
The Immunization Program follows a set vaccine schedule that protects the people of the CNMI from 18 different types of VPD’s (vaccine-preventable diseases). The schedule ensures that patients 6 weeks old and older receive the correct dosage of vaccines at the right time. Those who fall off track with the schedule can follow a “catch-up” schedule implemented at the Immunization Program.
