Vaccines to Immunization: A Review - Kristi Kelley

January 23, 2022 to January 23, 2026

Princeton Baptist Medical Center’s internal medicine resident clinic, Baptist Health Foundation Center for Medical and Surgical Care, provides care for a diverse patient population, representing patients with a variety of medical needs. Within this patient population, immunization against different diseases are commonly indicated based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations. However, with the indications for each vaccination as well as the age recommendations and timing in which to provide them constantly changing, it can be difficult to stay updated on current recommendations. Since a significant portion of patients visiting the clinic are eligible for at least one vaccine, if not several, it is important for all members of the healthcare team to feel confident in recommending immunizations. The internal medicine clinic healthcare team consists of physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and social workers. Each member of the healthcare team works together to optimize the health and wellbeing of each patient. The purpose of this presentation includes educating the healthcare team of the various immunizations for this patient population, what vaccines are available in this clinic versus pharmacy, when patients are eligible to receive them, any patient-specific factors deem an individual eligible for a vaccination, and possible contraindications and precautions that need to be considered before administration.  Mallory McClung and Katelyn Carswell, fourth year pharmacy students at Auburn University’s Harrison College of Pharmacy, are assisting with the development and presentation of this program
