It's National Immunization Awareness month—are your staff and patients well informed about vaccinations?
Back to school and flu season are both around the corner, which makes August the perfect time of year to remind everyone to get their recommended immunizations. While most parents are consciencous about getting their children vaccinated, they may be completely in the dark when it comes to recommendations for adult vaccines, so you want to make sure they understand that immunzations are recommended for people of all ages.
Help spread the word about immunization recommendations for appropriate patients. A simple screening chart can help identify patients who might need vaccinations.
