VacScene Newsletter

The VacScene Newsletter is produced monthly to health care providers who use publicly funded vaccines for child immunizations. The purpose of this newsletter is to give you up-to-date information that is valuable to your practice.

The VacScene Newsletter features articles on funding changes for vaccines and immunization programs, news on new vaccines, descriptions of local services or educational programs, and reports of national initiatives. We will also include articles on clinical issues, schedule changes, research report updates, and suggestions on improving immunization levels. While we will focus mostly on child immunizations, we will also inform you of significant developments in adult immunizations.
