During the 2010 legislative session, the Idaho State Legislature adopted a
chapter in the Idaho Code, Chapter 60, Title 41, entitled "Immunization
Assessments." The intent of the legislature was to provide funding for the Idaho
Immunization Program to continue to provide vaccines for insured Idaho children.
The chapter creates a dedicated vaccine fund and an independent board which
is empowered to assess fees from all health carriers to fund vaccine purchases.

Immunize Idaho Program
The Idaho Immunization program provides free vaccine to all participating
providers, education for health care providers, nursing programs, and the
general public, and maintains the statewide immunization registry (IRIS).
"The Idaho Immunization Assessment Program was established to provide access to more affordable immunizations for Idaho children. By providing
the ability to purchase vaccines at a lower cost, the Department of Insurance, working with the Department of Health & Welfare, as well as the
Insurance industry, assures the program provides more efficiency for providers, as well as saving Idahoans and Idaho Employers money, while
providing additional access to immunizations."
