Vaccinate NY

Infants are particularly vulnerable to vaccine preventable diseases such as influenza and pertussis. Evidence suggests that immunizing pregnant women and close contacts reduces both maternal and infant morbidity and mortality. Prenatal care providers and other mid-level health care providers (midwives, nurses, physician assistants, etc.) have an important role in promoting vaccines to pregnant women. Here you will find online training and resources with a specific focus on influenza and pertussis.
