Join CDC weekly for “Pink Book Wednesdays” from 12:00 pm-1:00 pm EDT, starting June 6, 2018.

On Wednesdays from June 6 through September 26, CDC experts will discuss a new chapter of the 13th edition of Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases (commonly known as “The Pink Book”) and answer viewers’ questions. Webinars will be archived and posted within two weeks following each live event.
The webinar series will provide an overview of vaccines and the diseases they prevent, general best practice guidelines for immunization, vaccination principles, and immunization strategies for providers.

Immunization providers: Physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants, DoD paraprofessionals, medical students, state and local immunization programs, etc.

Attendance for each live webinar is limited to 1,500 registrants. We advise registrants to log in early before each webinar begins to secure a virtual “seat.”  If you miss the live event, you can watch the archived version when it is posted later on CDC’s website.
