What is CommUNITY?

This national movement is built on a pilot-proven approach that achieves results and builds upon them. CommUNITY is sponsored by Unity™ Consortium, a respected, thought-leading organization comprised of diverse experts focused on adolescent health and immunization.

 

CommUNITY helps you align your community of stakeholders to achieve agreed-upon goals. Through broad community engagement, we address gaps in AYA immunization coverage and unify communities through a simple, motivational campaign for healthcare providers (HCPs), AYAs and their parents. The goal is to significantly improve immunization rates for all CDC-recommended vaccines for AYAs.
