California Immunization Coalition Summit


It’s a wrap on our 2024 Summit in Sacramento!

Thank you to all of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and planning team for making this event a success.  Watch this space for announcement re our 2025 Summit in Riverside, California.


The California Immunization Coalition Summit is the premier event for clinicians, healthcare professionals, and public health advocates to learn about the latest information on vaccine preventable diseases and communication strategies for maintaining and improving vaccination rates in California and beyond. Professionals in medicine, pharmacy, nursing and public health have found the Summit to be a great opportunity to engage with fellow professionals in the fields of public health, epidemiology, infectious disease, pharmacy, and school health programs, to receive updates and develop collaborations for the future.

The CIC Summit brings together a wide range of speakers and immunization partners from across CA and across the country, to share ideas, discuss issues and identify partnerships that will support the mission of improved immunization rates for all Californians.

The 2024 Summit – Empowering Communities Through Science and Communication featured state and national speakers that provided clinical updates, communication strategies, policy impacts, and promoted discussion and opportunities for future collaborations.
