CDC launches new pneumococcal vaccination app for vaccine providers
CDC recently launched a free app to help vaccination providers quickly and easily determine which pneumococcal vaccines a patient needs and when.
- Incorporates recommendations for all ages so physicians, family physicians, pediatricians, and pharmacists alike will find the tool beneficial
- Will especially help pediatric providers interpret schedules for catch-up vaccination
- Will help all providers with vaccination based on medical indications
Users simply enter a patient’s age, note if the patient has specific underlying medical conditions, and answer questions about the patient’s pneumococcal vaccination history. Then the app provides patient-specific guidance consistent with the U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended immunization schedule.
