MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of SDIC is to increase immunization rates and improve the health of the residents of San Diego County by raising awareness and providing education about vaccine-preventable diseases.

HISTORY

Formerly I-3, the San Diego Immunization Coalition (SDIC) has been active since 1991, making it one of the oldest continuously operating immunization coalitions in the nation. SDIC celebrated its 25th year anniversary during the Spring Summit 2016, with two keynote speakers: Dr. Sarah Royce, Chief of the Immunization Branch from the California Department of Public Health, and Dr. Richard Pan, CA State Senator who authored SB 277.

COLLABORATION

SDIC is a community coalition that currently holds 900+ individual immunization partners throughout San Diego County, as of Fall 2017. Its fiscal agent is the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and it receives in-kind staff and logistical support from the County of San Diego's Public Health Services (PHS), Epidemiology and Immunizations Branch (EISB). Together these organizations support the Live Well San Diego initiative.
