About the Tennessee Immunization Program

The Tennessee Immunization Program (TIP) is responsible for promoting the proper use of all recommended vaccines, in collaboration with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other partners. It is our goal that at least 90% of people in Tennessee receive each vaccine recommended to protect them from disease.  Our program is comprised of the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program and Quality Assurance Unit, the Tennessee Immunization Information System (TennIIS) formerly the Registry Team, and the Perinatal Hepatitis B Prevention Unit.  Our epidemiologists also produce reports such as the annual 24 old month immunization status survey, and the local health departments’ Overdue DTaP and Three Star Reports.

Our Vision: A Tennessee free of vaccine-preventable diseases.
