The MNAAP Immunization Taskforce is committed to increasing infant, child, and teen immunization rates and decreasing barriers to vaccination. The task force is currently co-chaired by Dawn Martin, MD, FAAP, MPH and Garrett Jones, MD, FAAP.

Only three in four Minnesota children are up to date on their immunizations. Not only do immunizations save lives, but they also save on health care costs with every $1 spent yielding an estimated $10‐$14 in saved expenditure.

Improving the Minnesota pediatric immunization rates is one of the four strategic priorities of the MNAAP Board for 2017-2020. 

The MNAAP supports all efforts to strengthen immunization laws and eliminate personal belief, non-medical exemptions in Minnesota. MNAAP issued the policy statement “Stronger Childhood Immunization Laws needed in Minnesota” to explain this priority position.

The MNAAP Immunization workgroup meets by conference call on a monthly or “as needed” basis and welcome new members.
