Increasing Awareness and Implementation of the Standards for Adult Immunization Practice Through Partnerships With State and Local Immunization Programs - Financed Solely by PPHF 2015 Prevention and Public Health Funds.: Adult vaccination rates are well below the national Healthy People 2020 goals and racial and ethnic disparities in vaccination coverage rates among adults are substantial. Barriers that exist for improving vaccination rates in adults include limited patient awareness of the need for vaccines as an adult, shortcomings in terms of incorporation of adult immunizations into routine patient care structure, and record keeping and documentation of adult immunizations, including limited use of immunization information systems (IIS) by adult vaccine providers. The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to develop and implement programs designed to increase adult immunization rates and reduce immunization rate disparities among adults, drawing on the principles of the Community Guide to Preventive Services for what works to improve immunization rate and the Standards for Adult Immunization Practice (aka “ the Standards”).Awardees are expected to demonstrate measurable progress in addressing the following objectives with the goal of improving vaccination rates, through:1. Collaboration with community health centers (CHC), pharmacies/ pharmacists, and clinical practice groups or large healthcare organizations/ systems to improve and expand the implementation of the Adult Immunization Standards (aka “Standards”), in the four key components of the Standards: a. increasing the routine clinical practice of assessing which vaccines are needed for adult patients, b. improving and expanding healthcare providers’ recommendation for needed adult vaccines among their adult patients, c. improving the ability and process to provide recommended adult vaccinations on-site in clinical practice or the ability and process to refer adult patients to other provider sites which can provide the recommended adult vaccines, d. improving the ability and practice of adult healthcare providers to routinely and accurately document delivery of adult vaccinations among their adult patients, specifically through increased use of the immunization information systems (aka 'registries'); and2. Developing strategies to best utilize available Section 317 vaccine purchase funds to expand access to all Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended adult vaccines to uninsured adults. Such strategies could include working with community health centers (CHC) and possibly other community groups that serve uninsured adults to increase delivery of immunization services to uninsured adults and reduce disparities in adult vaccination coverage.Applicants will propose a technical package of activities directed towards the above objectives. Proposed activities should be supported by evidenced based strategies as described in the Community Guide to Preventive Health Services.
