Influenza and Pneumococcal Vaccines
The National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit provides laminated influenza vaccination pocket guides free of charge to assist healthcare professionals in vaccinating patients against influenza. For more than a decade, the Summit has produced and distributed such a pocket guide. The Summit is pleased to also be able to continue distribution of a similar pocket guide to aid in pneumococcal vaccination efforts.
The purpose of each of these pocket guides is to provide front-line healthcare personnel with information on:
- Indications and contraindications for the vaccines
- Information on targeted populations to be vaccinated
- Details on how to administer the vaccines
- Talking points for patients
Pocket guides are NOT to be distributed to patients. They are for the use of healthcare professionals only.
Each of these pocket guides is available at no cost to your agency or organization. We encourage you to distribute the pocket guides to your members or constituents along with your encouragement to use the pocket guides to avoid missed opportunities.
