Vaccinate NY

Vaccines protect people by preparing the immune system to recognize and fight serious and sometimes deadly diseases. With this in mind, and knowing that additional education on the latest data and evidence-based strategies to improve immunization rates is needed, the New York State Department of Health works with the Center for Public Health Continuing Education on distance-based education focused on specific populations. Click on a tab below to access training for these important populations.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends that adults receive immunization against 15 infectious diseases, such as influenza, pneumococcal disease, zoster (shingles), measles and hepatitis A and B. The evidence shows that a strong provider recommendation will greatly increase the acceptance of vaccinations.

Evidence shows that certain strains of the HPV virus can cause several types of cancers. It is recommended that preteens receive the HPV vaccine starting at age 11-12 to prevent HPV related cancers.

Evidence suggests that immunizing pregnant women and their close contacts against the flu and pertussis reduces both maternal and infant morbidity and mortality.
