Routine vaccination is an essential preventive care service for adults as well as children. Unfortunately, many US adults do not receive all recommended vaccines and thus, remain unprotected against preventable diseases. This gap in coverage has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Join the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) for a discussion on current adult vaccination recommendations and strategies for increasing coverage among adults in the US.
NFID Medical Director William Schaffner, MD will moderate the panel discussion with Ruth M. Carrico, PhD, DNP, FNP-C, CIC, Professor, Division of Infectious Diseases, University of Louisville School of Medicine; Jean-Venable “Kelly” R. Goode, PharmD, BCPS, Professor and Director of the PGY1 Community-Based Pharmacy Residency Program, VCU School of Pharmacy; and National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) Chair Robert H. Hopkins, Jr., MD, Professor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and Director of the Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) College of Medicine.

At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize current US recommendations for adult vaccination
  • Discuss the rationale for US adult vaccination recommendations
  • Describe the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on routine adult vaccination coverage
  • Apply strategies for implementation of recommendations for adult vaccination into practice

There is no fee to participate in this activity, but pre-registration is required.
