General Best Practice Guidelines for Immunization

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The CDC has released the General Best Practice Guidelines for Immunization as an online report, available on the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) web page (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/acip-recs/general-recs/index.html). The General Best Practice Guidelines for Immunization replace the General Recommendations on Immunization, last published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) in 2011.

HPV Roundtable

The National HPV Vaccination Roundtable (HPV Roundtable) is a trusted coalition of public, private, and voluntary organizations and experts dedicated to reducing incidence of and mortality from HPV cancers in the United States.  Check out their resources.

Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA)

The IDSA has created their Vaccine Advocacy Toolkit.  While the United States has made significant progress toward eliminating vaccine-preventable diseases among children, similar successes have not yet occurred for adults and adolescents. Unacceptably low immunization rates exist among many adults and adolescents in the US. To combat this failure, IDSA developed a set of policy principles and recommendations to strengthen adult and adolescent immunizations, and we are working with federal and state partners to move these ideas forward.
