Summary:

Vaccine-preventable diseases strike millions of adults annually. Not long ago, what nurses needed to know about immunizations was fairly simple: Infants and young children received the vast majority of vaccines, and adult immunizations could be counted on one hand, with a few fingers left over. Recently, however, 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 will address various vaccine formulations and indications, and provide resources for healthcare professionals to stay current on vaccine recommendations.

Objectives:

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
