For Provider Practices
Many are unaware or misinformed about the need for vaccines beyond childhood. Your patients rely on you to advise them about important measures to protect their health—and your recommendation is the strongest predictor of whether they get vaccinated. Incorporating vaccines as part of your standard patient assessment can help reduce the number of missed opportunities for adult immunization.
Whether or not your practice offers vaccinations, ALL healthcare professionals should routinely assess patient vaccine needs and recommend the appropriate vaccines.
