FREE Continuing Ed: How to Foster a Culture of Immunization

Nurses and medical assistants play a key role in improving vaccine acceptance, as they come in contact with parents throughout the office visit. CDC has launched a new free Continuing Education (CE) activity called How Nurses and Medical Assistants Can Foster a Culture of Immunization in the Practice. The new CE teaches practical strategies to improve vaccination rates in a practice, including how to deliver clear and concise vaccine recommendations and address parents’ frequently asked questions. Speakers include Virginia Chambers, Director of the Medical Assisting Program at Portland Community College, and Andrea Polkinghorn, Enterprise Immunization Strategy Leader at Sanford Health.
