Mountain AHEC




Diseases like measles, mumps and pertussis are not a thing of the past. These serious and deadly diseases are vaccine-preventable but have been making a resurgence in the US in recent years, mainly in communities with higher rates of unimmunized people. Buncombe County consistently leads the state in the percentage of kindergartners who have not received all of their required immunizations, putting our children and community at risk of an outbreak. The purpose of this event is to inform and mobilize the community to increase immunization uptake in Western North Carolina.


  • Define the current state of immunization on the national, state and local levels.
  • Illustrate how decreasing immunization rates can lead to vaccine preventable outbreaks.
  • Review literature addressing vaccine hesitancy.
  • Utilize participants expertise, skill sets, creativity and gained knowledge to generate strategies to improve and sustain immunization rates in our community.
