The world of immunizations in adolescents and adults has changed dramatically over the past 10 years. From newer vaccines to changing guidelines, the landscape has changed for payers, providers and patients. This two-part webinar series will take a close look at those changes on immunizations in adolescents and adults. Attendees will be updated on the latest data and guidelines to help increase rates, costs and patient outcomes.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Examine recent guideline and recommendation updates on adolescent and adult immunizations

  • Identify adolescents who are at increased risk for vaccine-preventable diseases and thus should be vaccinated

  • Assess the latest clinical guidelines regarding the timing of HPV immunizations in preteens, teens and young adults

  • Describe common barriers to effective immunization practices among diverse patient populations

  • Examine current adult vaccination recommendations for the influenza; pneumococcal; and herpes zoster vaccines
