Emory University Rollins School of Public Health, USA.


The US federal government has been providing support to state and local health departments for immunization program since 1920' s. Many government and nongovernment organizations, groups and personnel are involved in the process of the US immunization program. These organizations and groups are moving towards the same direction under the policy of "reducing the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases and to increase the safe usage of vaccines and related biological products". Thus every organization keeps step with the others, which will make states and other local government easier to follow the recommendations. In this review, we will introduce the system and structure of the US immunization administration and indicate why the US has succeeded to decrease vaccine preventable disease with immunization.
