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.
Continuing education will be available for each event.
Advance registration is required to participate. Registrants will receive an email with instructions for accessing the webinar no later than the morning of the scheduled event.
Note that you will be registered for any remaining, events. Should you wish to opt out of future webinar events, please send an email to email@example.com.
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.
