It is especially important for adults with chronic health conditions to be up-to-date on recommended vaccinations, as they are at increased risk for complications from certain vaccine-preventable diseases. CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) is hosting a webinar about vaccination of adults with chronic health conditions on May 28, 2020 at 3:00pm ET.

Three physicians will discuss vaccine recommendations and strategies for increasing immunization rates among adults with chronic conditions such as heart disease, lung disease and diabetes.

Objectives: By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain why vaccines are important for adults with chronic conditions.
  • Describe adult vaccination coverage rates and vaccines recommended for adults with chronic conditions.
  • Effectively communicate with adult patients about the importance of getting recommended vaccines to help manage their chronic condition.
  • Analyze office procedures to reduce missed opportunities to vaccinate.
  • Identify CDC educational resources for healthcare professionals and patients.
