Vaccine Awareness

The specific immunizations you need as an adult are determined by factors such as your age, lifestyle, high-risk conditions, type and locations of travel, and previous immunizations.  Visit http://www.cdc.gov/ to download Immunization Schedules.


In September, 2014 - NANASP as well as 18 other organizations sent a letter to CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner to encourage CMS to support the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendations on administering the PCV13 vaccination, a pneumococcal vaccine, to all adults ages 65 and older. NANASP Executive Director Bob Blancato testified in support of this proposal before ACIP in June. Administrator Tavenner responded to the letter.
