Contract Management

Local Health Departments (LHD) receive state general revenue and federal funding from the Immunization Unit via Interlocal Agreements (ILA) to implement activities with the primary goal of raising vaccine coverage levels in Texas. Immunization contracts with LHDs are based on the Texas DSHS Immunization cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and activities in the CDC’s Immunization Program Operations Manual (IPOM). LHD contract requirements are based on the CDC’s current IPOM and are updated annually.
