Questions about COVID-19 and vaccinations?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, TIP is working to meet the needs of our front-line public health responders, health care professionals, and the public. The TIP team, along with our Pandemic Vaccine Task Force and Health Equity Council, provide valuable feedback and recommendations to our local, state, and federal partners to improve distribution, allocation, and access to COVID-19 vaccines.

Meet Mobi and Victor

The Immunization Partnership created a children's book that explains community immunity and the importance of keeping those who are unable to receive vaccines safe from harm. The book follows Mobi, a pesky measles virus, who has a goal of infecting everyone in Townsville. However, a superhero vaccine named Victor quickly throws a wrench in Mobi's plans. The book takes the reader on an exciting adventure with Mobi and Victor as they explore several different situations about community immunity together.

Regional Dashboards

TIP is pleased to announce the publications of Regional Dashboards, or health reports, for Texas parents, educators, public health workers, and state and local policy makers.

The Regional Dashboards highlight key immunization data points for each of the eight Texas geographic regions and feature resident opinions on vaccine-related issues. Data points include non-medical exemption rates and five-year trends for school-required vaccines, seasonal deaths from flu and pneumonia, and immunity thresholds for each region’s public school districts.

You can access and share the information below.
