ACP Guide to Adult Immunization
Produced by faculty of ACP's Quality Improvement Programs and members of the ACP Adult Immunization Advisory Board, the ACP Guide to Adult Immunization will help you develop systematic processes for incorporating immunization in your day-to-day practice.
The Guide is divided into four sections:
- Section 1: Quality Improvement Principles in Immunization
- Section 2: Resources for Practical Application
- Section 3: Recommended Adult Vaccines and Their Indications
- Section 4: Special Populations (Pregnant Women, Immunocompromised, etc.)
Our intention is that this Guide will be read by and shared among the entire office team. You may find that Sections 1 and 2 are more beneficial to administrators and office staff, while physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses may want to concentrate on Sections 3 and 4. Attending physicians and their residents will find residency clinic-specific information in Section 2.
The full guide is available in high and low resolution PDF formats in the left column. You can also download individual sections.
Editorial direction and production were made possible by a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (1U66IP000393-01). Printing of the ACP Guide to Adult Immunization was made possible by educational grants from Sanofi Pasteur, Merck Vaccines, and Pfizer, Inc.
