The Colorado Immunity Corps was formed in 2020 by Immunize Colorado, a statewide 501(c)3 nonprofit which works to protect Colorado families, schools and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Members will identify problems, propose solutions, and may implement new interventions, or improve current ones. Evaluation of programmatic outcomes, as well as succession planning, is part of each member's experience.
