Join partners around the state in participating in Preteen Vaccine Week, February 26 through March 4. To spread the word on routine preteen immunizations, post educational materials in your office or take to social media. The resources listed below can support your efforts.
Adolescent immunization decreased in initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic. CAIR2 data indicate that large deficits persist for human papillomavirus (HPV) and meningococcal (MenACWY) immunizations, leaving many preteens and teens at ongoing risk.
To help your patients catch up with their protection against meningococcal disease and cancers caused by HPV, issue reminder/recalls through your EHR or CAIR2.
