Adult Vaccination Information for Healthcare and Public Health Professionals

In the Spotlight

According to data from the 2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), adult vaccination coverage remains low for most routinely recommended vaccines. In 2013, the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) updated the Standards for Adult Immunization Practice to reflect the critical need for ALL healthcare professionals – whether they provide immunization services or not – to take steps to ensure that adult patients get the vaccines they need.

Healthcare professionals are the most valued and trusted source of health information for adults. Research shows that most adults believe vaccines are important and that a recommendation from their healthcare professional is the strongest predictor of adults getting vaccinated. CDC is committed to working with healthcare professionals to improve adult vaccination rates and reduce the number of missed opportunities for vaccinations.
