CCDR: Volume 41S-3, April 20, 2015: Immunization across the lifespan

Inside this supplement: Immunization across the lifespan

Vaccines are not just for children. To mark National Immunization Awareness Week coming up April 25 to May 2, 2015, this supplement explores immunization across the lifespan. Read the case for giving increased attention to adult vaccines, and learn about two key strategies to address vaccine hesitancy. Then see summaries of recent publications from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization and see our ID News section for an update on the recent measles outbreaks that have stimulated discussion of the importance of immunization to everyone. Dr. Bonnie Henry is our Guest Editor.
