New Jersey Immunization Network

The mission of the New Jersey Immunization Network is to protect the health of all individuals through timely, age-appropriate immunization against vaccine-preventable diseases by educating the public, healthcare professionals, and policymakers about vaccine safety and benefits.

New Jersey Immunization Network (NJIN) is a statewide coalition committed to advancing immunization rates throughout the State by providing healthcare providers, the public, and policy makers with the most current scientifically-sound information pertaining to the importance of safely immunizing infants, children, adolescents, and adults throughout New Jersey.

Jointly co-founded and led by the American Academy of Pediatrics New Jersey Chapter (AAPNJ) and the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians (NJAFP), NJIN has grown to approximately 240 members representing over 132 public and private entities. This statewide alliance is co-chaired by nationally acclaimed pediatric infectious disease specialists Margaret (Meg) Fisher, MD, FAAP and Lawrence Frenkel, MD, FAAP, and vice co-chaired by John J. Moore, DO, FAAFP and Peter Wenger, MD.

Initially emerging as an offshoot of the 2009 AAPNJ Immunization Congress, NJIN quickly developed the infrastructure and associations essential for positively impacting New Jersey’s dire immunization rates. Today, the Network is actively involved in reaching out and attracting an expanding list of key stakeholders, assisting in efforts to accelerate acceptance and participation in the mandated transition to the New Jersey Immunization Information System (NJIIS), taking proactive measures to counteract public and legislative efforts to loosen or increase school/child care immunization exemptions, and providing education and resources to healthcare professionals, the media, and the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services.

New Jersey Immunization Network is a joint initiative led by the American Academy of Pediatrics, NJ Chapter (AAP/NJ) and New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians (NJAFP).

New members are always welcome. For more information or to join the New Jersey Immunization Network, please contact; Director, Diane Carroll, dcarroll@aapnj.org; Program Coordinator, Mary Jo Garofoli, mjgarofoli@aapnj.org or call us at 609-588-9988.
