Continuing education opportunity for nurses and medical assistants
The CDC recently published a new continuing education opportunity, called “How to Foster a Culture of Immunization.” The course content focuses on “practical strategies to improve vaccination rates in practice, including how to deliver clear and concise vaccine recommendations and address parents’ frequently asked questions.”
The course is freely available as an on-demand video module and can be applied toward CME, CNE, CEU, and CECH credits.
Materials in this section are updated as new information and vaccines become available. The Vaccine Education Center staff regularly reviews materials for accuracy.
