Be sure you know about newly issued vaccines recommendations for healthcare personnel, and the rationale behind them.  Be informed so you can take action in your work setting ….or for yourself, as an individual healthcare provider.

We know vaccine administration errors occur.  What is the extent of this problem and what can we do about it?  Working with hundreds of queries from vaccine providers, and some limited data, CDC has put together this session to share the most pertinent information to ensure these errors are identified, resolved and prevented in a most pro-active way.
This package of resources is a collaboration of CDC, the American Nurses Association, the National Network of Immunization Nurses and Their Associates and the Immunization Action Coalition.  The program was planned by nurses for nurses but would be useful to other healthcare providers or administrators interested in any of the three topics.

How to Participate: Join us for one, two or all three of these sessions.
First: View the pre-taped webcast first, at any time before the scheduled live session.
Then: Join us for the live session, via conference  call, on April 4, 25 and/or May 2.
There is no cost to participate.  Attendance at the live sessions is limited to the first 1000 people.
