Project: Improving childhood immunization rates in a First Nations community
The aim of Dr. Ndubuka’s CQIP project was to increase the immunization rates for one-year-olds from 82% to 90% and two-year-olds from 80% to 90% by March 31, 2019 in Stanley Mission First Nations. Resulting immunization rates for the one-year-old and two-year-old cohorts were 99% and 87%, respectively. The two main initiatives that helped achieve those rates was providing transportation for mothers from their homes to the clinic and providing immunization evaluations for all children under the age of eight who were assessed in the clinic.
