Immunize Now! Influenza Vaccination Resources
In 2003, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) created a influenza immunization toolkit to help physician and other health care professionals provide influenza vaccination to their patients and the public. The AMA worked with the CDC to enable distribution of this toolkit. Many of the materials from the 2003-2004 season are still useful for upcoming seasons.
However, the CDC will continue to provide updated information for downloading from its Web site.
We hope that physicians and other health care professionals will use this new information to increase influenza immunization rates across the United States.
