ACOG Adult Immunization Project

Increasing Immunization Rates through Obstetrician-Gynecologist Partnerships

ACOG is proud to present the 20 Ob-Gyn Immunization Champions participating in the CDC*-funded adult immunization project entitled: Increasing Immunization Rates through Obstetrician-Gynecologist Partnerships. These Immunization Champions will provide leadership for their practice as they further advance their immunization programs. The ACOG project will assist these Immunization Champions in developing additional tools and resources to increase the health of their patients, families, and office staff. 

ACOG is also collaborating with the California and Massachusetts Departments of Public Health to provide free and local resources and support. The state and local DPH will be key partners in this project as ob-gyns find ways to reduce barriers to adult immunization and increase access to vaccines.

Resources, including webinars, will be developed throughout the project and available for ACOG members.
