Join CDC weekly for “Pink Book Wednesdays” from 12:00 pm-1:00 pm EDT, starting June 14, 2017.

Each Wednesday for 15 weeks, CDC experts will discuss a new chapter of The 13th Edition 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 recommendations for vaccines, 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
Continuing education will be available for each event.

Advanced 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 all, or remaining, events. Should you wish to opt out of future webinar events or emails, please send an email to

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

The Pink Book, though not required for webinar participation, is available online or for purchase:
