Adolescent Immunization Toolkit: Tools & Resources for Vaccinating Adolescents in MichiganIn recent years more vaccines have become available to protect pre-teens and adolescents from serious diseases. The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) follows recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
In September 2010, new school immunization requirements went into effect. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the Society for Adolescent Medicine (SAM), and other professional medical organizations recommend that providers vaccinate based on current ACIP recommendations. In doing so, Michigan's school immunization requirements will be met.
This toolkit contains links to resources for immunization providers in Michigan, in order to prepare for an influx of adolescent patients who need vaccines. Providers and local health departments are urged to start vaccination efforts now. For more information on school reporting, please contact the immunization program at your local health department.
