Colorado Immunity Corps
 
 
 
As a statewide 501(c)3 nonprofit, Immunize Colorado (formerly the Colorado Children's Immunization Coalition) works to protect Colorado families, schools and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases. Immunize Colorado works with health care providers, public health departments, businesses, policy makers, and community organizations to fulfill our mission. Through these partnerships, Immunize Colorado leverages the strengths and resources of our members and community partners to maximize the effectiveness of our efforts. The Colorado Immunity Corps (CO-mmunity Corps) is Immunize Colorado’s statewide AmeriCorps VISTA program which aims to advance and promote vaccine delivery and education in communities across Colorado. Eight full-time AmeriCorps VISTA members will complete their year of national service at local public health agencies and community-based organizations across the state of Colorado. Current positions are available at Delta County Health Department in Delta, Garfield County Public Health in Glenwood Springs, and Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment in Greeley. The AmeriCorps VISTA Immunization Outreach and Education Coordinator positions will work closely with community partners to promote access to primary care and improve immunization rates through community-based immunization clinics and education and outreach events. With support from staff members at host sites and Immunize Colorado, each VISTA member will be responsible for the organization, promotion, implementation and evaluation of these interventions. Applicants to this position should have strong communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to act independently as well as on a team. This position is a great opportunity to make a true impact on the health of Colorado communities.
