Use Simple Strategies to Identify Patients Who May Need Vaccines
You're on the front lines to identify patients who need vaccines.
Develop strategies to flag eligible patients.
For example, check dates of birth when entering new Rxs. Many adults 60 and older may need a shingles vaccine (Zostavax II)...and most patients 65 and older may need Prevnar 13, followed by Pneumovax 23 at least 8 weeks later.
