This cooperative agreement is designed to provide an alternate source of scientific, accurate and credible immunization information in reaching minority populations through various venues including electronic and/or digital formats to complement CDCs own web-based resources, and to provide information for persons who would prefer to receive immunization information from non-government sources.
