Vaccination Care for Adults
Your recommendation is a critical factor in whether your patients receive the vaccines that they need. Research indicates that most adults believe that vaccines are important and are likely to receive them if recommended by their healthcare professionals (HCPs).
As a standard of practice, all HCPs have the responsibility to routinely assess patient immunization status and to strongly recommend vaccines that patients need. Providers who don't stock vaccines should discuss needed vaccines with their patients, write a vaccine-specific recommendation, and then refer them to a clinic or pharmacy that provides vaccination services.
