Published on in Vaccine Update for Healthcare Providers
Staff of the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) have been hard at work creating new immunization resources and updating existing downloadable, free materials for healthcare professionals’ use.
Laminated U.S. immunization schedules
IAC’s laminated 2018 U.S. immunization schedules — one for children/teens and one for adults — are now available for purchase. These helpful tools are covered with a tough, washable coating and will stand up to a year's worth of use in every area of your healthcare setting. Both schedules are eight pages (i.e., four double-sided pages) and are folded to measure 8.5" x 11”.
Free, ready-to-download educational materials for staff and your patients
Recently, CDC’s vaccination recommendations for zoster (shingles), MMR, and hepatitis B vaccines changed, and IAC’s materials for healthcare professionals and patients have been updated accordingly. IAC’s materials are CDC-reviewed, free to download, and ready-to-use. Here are links to some of IAC’s recently updated pieces:
- Healthcare Personnel Vaccination Recommendations
- Standing Orders for Administering Zoster Vaccine to Adults
- Screening Checklist for Contraindications to Vaccines for Adults
- Current Dates of Vaccine Information Statements
- You Must Give Your Patients Vaccine Information Statements (VISs) – It’s Federal Law
- Before You Vaccinate Adults, Consider their “H-A-L-O”!
