The CIET is a simple collection of immunization resources and materials for the purpose of educating and advocating the public on full and timely vaccination.  

IPHA collaborated with EverThrive IL to bring this valuable training resource to local health departments throughout our state.

Experience in health outreach or immunizations is not necessary. The Toolkit contains background information that the trainees can use to train fellow community workers and/or educate the public about immunizations. Trainees can expect to gain knowledge about immunizations, communicable diseases and ways to communicate the importance of vaccination.
