Assess for Needed Immunizations

Assess for Needed Immunizations

Use the current Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) immunization schedule (child/adolescent or adult) to determine what recommended vaccines are needed based on the patient’s immunization history. Be sure to assess for routinely recommended vaccines at every visit, as well as any vaccines that are indicated based on health status, occupation, or other risk factors.

An immunization information system, if available, can help health care providers determine if immunizations are due that day.
