What’s Ahead:

The California Immunization Coalition will be  holding the 2018 Summit at the Kimpton Sawyer Hotel in Sacramento, California. The theme of this year’s Summit is Onward and Upward and will focus on utilizing our public health successes to engage with new partners, grow our Coalition network and educate and support our communities. For over ten years now, the CIC Summit has brought together partners and colleagues from throughout California and beyond to share ideas, highlight successes, and identify partnerships.

Summit Objectives: 

  • Provide support and technical assistance to enhance existing education, communication, and outreach efforts
  • Facilitate the sharing of successful strategies and best practices to strengthen local and statewide advocacy efforts
  • Encourage the adoption of programs for healthcare providers to promote and deliver immunizations across the lifespan.
  • Review new recommendations, issues and trends in immunizations and vaccine-preventable diseases.
