AFIX Process

The Immunization Program began implementing a process for conducting AFIX site visits, as required by the CDC. Immunization data in VacTrAK is used to assess provider level immunization coverage rates. Aggregate data and surveys are communicated to individual providers.

What are the nation’s experts saying to their patients about HPV vaccination? Three providers—a pediatrician, an OB-GYN, and a head and neck surgeon—outline the importance of vaccinating 11- and 12-year-olds against HPV cancers in a newly released e-learning module.

“Increasing Adolescent Immunization Coverage” is a 40-minute e-learning module
for pediatric and primary care provider teams, created by members of the National HPV Vaccination Roundtable. This module provides information, guidance, and
tools for quality improvement efforts to increase HPV vaccination by improving providers’ ability to: 

  • Describe the importance of the HPV vaccine

  • Implement the “same way, same day” approach to HPV vaccination for 11- and 12-year-olds

  • Answer parents’ questions accurately and succinctly

  • Introduce new practice tools to support HPV vaccination in the pediatric
    health care setting

RNs/NPs, physicians, physician’s assistants, and pharmacists can earn a free hour/credit by viewing the CME module here. Non-credit seeking audiences can view the video here.  You can also access the Partner Promotion Package which includes social media messages, a flyer, a powerpoint slide, and an infocard at: http://bit.ly/HPV_CMEPromoPack. Thanks for helping disseminate this broadly within your networks!​
