Pneumococcal Vaccination: Information for Healthcare Professionals
Pneumococcal vaccines help protect against some of the more than 100 serotypes of pneumococcal bacteria. Pneumococcal disease contributes to the U.S. burden of pneumonia, meningitis, bacteremia, sinusitis, and otitis media.
The “Pink Book” contains the most comprehensive information on routinely used vaccines and the diseases they prevent.
Six reference appendices include: vaccine minimum ages and intervals, current and discontinued vaccines, vaccine contents, foreign vaccine terms, and more.
You Call the Shots is an interactive, web-based immunization training course. It consists of a series of modules that discuss vaccine-preventable diseases and explain the latest recommendations for vaccine use. Each module provides learning opportunities, self-test practice questions, reference and resource materials, and an extensive glossary.
