AFIX (or Assessment, Feedback, Incentives, and eXchange) is a national quality improvement model developed by the CDC to improve vaccine delivery in primary care settings. This study adapts and evaluates the AFIX model to improve adolescent immunization coverage in three states, with a primary focus on HPV vaccination coverage. The results will be presented of this randomized controlled trial to test the effectiveness HPV-focused AFIX for increasing vaccine initiation. Research findings also will be presented on states’ administration of HPV-focused immunization QI tools, as well as study challenges and avenues to improve AFIX efficiency through new delivery modes.
