About Parental Resources | Provider Resources

ICAAP Immunization Initiatives focus on immunization education for providers, policy, and advocacy developed in collaboration with the Chicago Department of Public Health and the Illinois Department of Public Health.

The ROG program presents clinical information on the newest immunization recommendations for childhood immunizations and adolescent immunizations, provides information and resources for healthcare providers on how to better manage immunizations in today’s health care environment, and how clinical practices can help increase immunization rates and improve the health of children in Illinois communities. The ROG program will provide pediatricians, family physicians, nurses and other pediatric health care professionals the ability to develop and/or increase their knowledge, skills, and professional performance on immunization to various standards recommended by CDC and AAP policy. Participating practices will also receive a comprehensive resource binder and reference books.

ROG provides immunization resources for pediatric health care providers.  Links to these resources are provided below.
