This month we wanted to highlight three resources that will be helpful to know about for your own use or for use by your colleagues.
AAP develops children’s vaccination interactive map
Do you want to know what the routine childhood vaccine coverage is in your state? Want to know where there have been recent outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases? How about vaccination rates over time or a deeper dive into vaccination gaps? You can find all of this information using the new tool created by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
Meningitis B Action Project releases meningococcal vaccine algorithm
The Meningitis B Action Project recently released an algorithm to aide healthcare providers in appropriately vaccinating patients with meningococcal ACWY and meningococcal B vaccines.
The algorithm can be downloaded or ordered, and it will soon be available in digital version.
CDC offers free “Pink Book” webinar series
Each week between July 5 and Nov. 1, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be releasing a new video-based session addressing a chapter from the most recent version of Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases, more commonly known as the “Pink Book.”
Individuals do not need to register, and each session is archived, so you can view sessions at your convenience. These are great for teams to view together or individually, so that everyone is starting from the same place when it comes to vaccines and related recommendations.
Materials in this section are updated as new information and vaccines become available. The Vaccine Education Center staff regularly reviews materials for accuracy.
You should not consider the information in this site to be specific, professional medical advice for your personal health or for your family's personal health. You should not use it to replace any relationship with a physician or other qualified healthcare professional. For medical concerns, including decisions about vaccinations, medications and other treatments, you should always consult your physician or, in serious cases, seek immediate assistance from emergency personnel.
