President Clinton submitted the Comprehensive Childhood Immunization Initiative Act to Congress in April 1993.
The objective of the legislation is to protect all children in the United States by their second birthday against nine vaccine-preventable infectious diseases.
As originally introduced in the Congress the initiative called for (a) Federal purchase and distribution of recommended childhood vaccines for all children, (b) improving the public health capacity to deliver vaccine, (c) establishing a State-based national immunization information and tracking system, and (d) expanding immunization education and mobilization efforts directed to health care providers and parents.
