Optimizing Immunization Programs in Obstetric-Gynecologic Practices Toolkit

Preventive care for ob-gyn patients is critical. Immunization against vaccine preventable diseases is an essential component of that care. Obstetrician-gynecologists and other women’s health care providers can play a major role in improving vaccination coverage and preventing infectious diseases.

The Optimizing Immunization Programs in Obstetric-Gynecologic Practices Toolkit, released in March 2019, provides information and resources for ob-gyns and their practice teams as they implement strategies to improve immunization processes and increase patient immunization rates. This tool kit can assist women’s health care providers in effectively integrating immunizations into the practice work flow and into their routine patient care.
