From the Paper:

"In this study the researchers wanted to identify state and urban areas that increased immunization coverage rates the greatest over the 2001 to 2004 time period and determine which programs helped achieve this increase in immunization coverage rates. It is the responsibility of state and urban immunization programs to implement programs that will facilitate vaccination of the population within their geographic region (Groom, 2010). How this is accomplished varies from state to state and within urban regions. Some programs are more successful than others. This study wanted to identify regions with increased rates of immunization coverage rates. The top seven sites were than interviewed to determine what programs were in place at their geographic location that helped increase immunization rates over the set time period. These sites include four states: Arkansas, Florida, New Jersey, and New Mexico. Plus, three urban centers: Baltimore, Maryland; King County (Seattle), Washington; and Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. A companion study looks at which of these areas then was able to sustain their high immunization coverage rates (Kennedy, 2010). This study is important because it provides insight from professionals within the field of vaccination coverage into how to improve vaccination coverage rates. Also, this study is the first to directly interview the people responsible for driving immunization efforts. The purpose of the study was clearly stated in both the abstract and in more detail within the introduction."
