G7: Registries Help Prevent Flu Too

As influenza vaccine recommendations are enhanced to include new target groups, busy clinics, private providers, and hospitals need improved and more efficient ways to identify and vaccinate their patients. Immunization registries can help health care providers manage, evaluate and ultimately improve their delivery of influenza vaccine to a variety of sub-populations, resulting in higher coverage rates.
Learning Objectives: Following this workshop, participants should be able to describe how to apply the capabilities of an immunization registry to the task of administering influenza vaccinations to high-risk populations.
