Concilio, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, is a key player in the education of families about vaccine preventable childhood diseases. By providing childhood immunization education and outreach services to families in the City of Philadelphia, Concilio promotes the healthy growth of children. Outreach activities are geared toward children from birth to two years of age who are immunization-delayed according to the KIDS Plus Immunization Information System. The goal of the program is to return children to a medical home to receive age-appropriate immunizations.
Concilio was honored for its 20-year partnership with the Philadelphia Immunization Program, as now the sole provider for the Department of Public Health. Since 1993, Concilio’s Immunizations Outreach Program has successfully brought thousands of immunization-delayed children up-to-date with their age-appropriate vaccines.
