Pediatric immunization rates have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. Our health care teams throughout the agency need to be able to address getting our pediatric/adolescent population caught up with routine vaccinations. Presenters will provide strategies, best practices, and tools to implement at the local/area level to improve the immunization coverage rates.
