The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) released a new health care provider resource, Strategies for Integrating Immunizations into Routine Obstetric-Gynecologic Care. The tip sheet offers suggestions for ob-gyns, other health care providers, and practice staff on ways to optimize immunization programs in ob-gyn practices and integrate immunizations into routine patient care.
The strategies outlined in this provider resource are based on findings from an ACOG adult immunization project funded by the CDC, and were shown to increase patient immunization rates among ob-gyns. Further details about the adult immunization project and the strategies detailed in the tip sheet can be found in the final report on the project’s demonstration phase.
Additional immunization resources, including clinical guidance, other provider tip sheets, and practice management tools, can be found at ACOG’s Immunization for Women website.
