Let’s RISE is a CDC initiative to provide actionable strategies, resources, and data to support getting all Americans back on-schedule with their routine immunizations to protect everyone from vaccine-preventable disease and disability.

Take Action to Get Routine Vaccinations Back On-Schedule

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we saw a concerning drop in routine immunizations for children and adolescents. Routine vaccination is rebounding but unevenly and has not yet recovered among all groups. While we continue to investigate the impact of the pandemic on routine immunizations, it is crucial that we take steps to help get everyone back on schedule with their routine immunizations.

Routine vaccination is improving, but is still behind schedule
Vaccination coverage is high and stable overall but may have not yet recovered. Children and teens can still catch up on vaccinations even if they start late. Check out these factsheets for an overview of the state of routine vaccination.

As trusted community leaders, health care professionals, and partners, you can

  • Prioritize ensuring everyone catches up on routine vaccination
  • Identify individuals behind on their vaccinations,
  • Encourage vaccination catch-up through reminders, recall, and outreach
  • Make strong vaccine recommendations
  • Make vaccines easy for everyone to find and afford
