Vaccine-preventable diseases strike millions of adults annually. Not long ago, what nurses needed to know about immunizations was simple: Infants and young children received most of the vaccines, and adult immunizations could be counted on one hand, with a few fingers left over. However, recently the number of recommended immunizations for people of all ages has increased to a level not seen before, and the number of vaccines keeps rising. This module addresses various vaccine formulations and indications and provides resources for healthcare professionals to stay up to date on vaccine recommendations.


The goal of this adult vaccination continuing education program is to inform healthcare professionals about vaccine-preventable diseases and provide information on recommended adult immunizations. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • State a primary reason for the increasing rate of vaccine-preventable diseases
  • Describe two behavioral indicators for the hepatitis B vaccine
  • Discuss three actions healthcare professionals can take when advocating immunizations for adults

With the increase in diseases that can be prevented with vaccination. It has become even more important to be knowledgeable about vaccines and the symptoms that goes along with them. Because it has been so many years since we have seen some of these diseases it can surely catch nurses and doctors off guard when it comes to early detection.
