Course Overview


Vaccines are among the greatest success stories in public health, yet immunization rates remain notably low. Numerous factors are involved in the suboptimal vaccination rates, including the lack of access to care, financial barriers, education, and patient attitudes or misconceptions. Healthcare providers need to be well acquainted with the current vaccination recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) which are updated annually. Additionally, clinicians must be prepared to address questions related to use in specific patient scenarios, equipped with innovative and practical strategies for implementing vaccine recommendations in their clinical setting, and ready to educate and counsel patients regarding timely and appropriate vaccination.

The enduring materials based on the live course include recordings of didactic presentations and clinical case discussions.
