Immunizations Network

Network Overview

Despite the availability of effective vaccines to help prevent influenza, pneumonia and herpes zoster (a.k.a. shingles), immunization rates for adults remain significantly low, falling well below the Healthy People 2020 targets.1

To help improve immunization rates for Medicare beneficiaries, the Immunizations Network is convening an online community of traditional health care providers, partners and community stakeholders from Arkansas, Missouri, Puerto Rico and Texas to identify and implement solutions to increase education and awareness of these vaccine-preventable diseases, and increase the immunization rates for these diseases across our region.

Join the Immunizations Network

By joining this network, you and/or your organization will receive access to free resources and training to help increase awareness of vaccine-preventable diseases and methods to increase the immunization rates within the Medicare beneficiary population in your community.

Download this fact sheet (PDF) to learn more about how you or your organization will benefit from joining the Immunizations Network. All health care providers, practitioners, home health agencies, stakeholders and partners are encouraged to join our network.
