Childhood immunization programs have been extremely successful, yet vaccines are not just for kids. We have been less successful in achieving high immunization coverage among adults. This presentation will focus on adult vaccination and two vaccine-preventable diseases: pneumococcal disease and herpes zoster. For each disease, we will review vaccine recommendations as well as disease characteristics.
Presenters: Dr. Shelley Deeks and Dr. Natasha Crowcroft
