Increasing Adolescent Vaccination Rates - Online

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began measuring immunization rates among US teens age 13-17 years in 2006 using the National Immunization Survey-Teen. Since that time, immunization rates among US teens have increased steadily. While these improvements are encouraging, gaps in coverage still remain, particularly for HPV vaccination. 

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
 
  • Describe the rationale for US adolescent vaccination recommendations
  • Identify gaps in current US adolescent vaccine coverage rates
  • Describe the risks associated with missing recommended adolescent vaccines
  • Discuss ways to integrate the 16-year-old platform into practice in order to increase adolescent vaccine uptake
