East Cleveland Immunization Needs Assessment

Healthy People 2010 has established a goal to raise childhood immunization rates and reduce or eliminate indigenous cases of vaccine-preventable diseases by targeting 90% coverage of the 4:3:1 immunization series (4: DPT, 3: Polio, 1: MMR) for young children. African American children fall desperately below this goal rate with a coverage rate of 74% in comparison to 82% for white children in the United States in 1998. As part of the Clinical Specialization in Community Health Nursing Master’s program of the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, a focused community needs assessment was done in East Cleveland to determine factors contributing to the low immunization rate for 2 year olds. Aspects of the Health Belief Model were used to develop a survey to assess parents’ perceived susceptibility, seriousness, benefits, barriers, and cues to action related to immunizations. Seventy-five WIC beneficiaries participated in the assessment that revealed little perceived susceptibility to vaccine-preventable diseases in this population. Interventions systematically designed to raise community awareness of the importance of immunizations were developed using the Precede-Proceed Model. Interventions included educational classes, public health announcements, and locally supported dissemination of information to community members. In collaboration with many community organizations immunization clinics will also be held. Formative and summative evaluation data of all aspects of the multiple interventions will be reported to determine the success of the program. Enactment of the advanced practice nursing roles of educator, researcher, administrator, consultant, and clinician of the Clinical Specialist in Community Health Nursing throughout assessment, program planning, implementation and evaluation will be reported.
