NACCHO is dedicated to strengthening local health departments' immunization infrastructure. NACCHO's immunization work increases local health departments' capacity to implement evidence-based public health programs, policies, and services to meet national standards in preventing and controlling vaccine preventable diseases.
In fall 2015, NACCHO awarded funding to ten local health departments to host an action planning meeting with stakeholders to determine strategies to address local HPV vaccination rates. Also, NACCHO extended additional funding to its first cohort of health departments, selected in 2014, to support the implementation of their HPV action plans.

NACCHO has created a toolkit with resources, templates, and tools for local health departments to use and develop capacity to bill third party payers for immunization, STD, TB, and HIV services. More than 200 resources have currently been collected from state billing guides, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, state health departments, local health departments, insurance companies, and vendors of products such as electronic medical records and billing clearinghouses. The Billing for Clinical Services Toolkit provides information to local health departments that are interested in starting the process to bill public and private sector payers for immunization and other clinical services.
