How often do the CAIHS programs report data to the Immunization Coordinator?
The California Area of the Indian Health Service (IHS) provides data regarding childhood immunizations to Headquarters on a quarterly basis. The individual program reports are due to the Area Immunization Coordinator by the 20th day of the month following the end of each fiscal year quarter. You can access and download the reporting form from the Resources page.
After completing the Immunization Reporting form, fax it to the Area Immunization Coordinator at (916) 930-3953. She will then collate the data and send it to IHS Headquarters by way of the National Immunization Coordinator. All Indian Health Service areas report this data on a quarterly basis.
These reports provide valuable information regarding the progress the area programs are making toward meeting the IHS GPRA Objectives and demonstrate the area's performance in relation to the rest of the IHS areas across the nation.
