CDC Pink Book Webinars 2020


Beginning July 1, the CDC is offering weekly one-hour videos that provide an overview of vaccination principles, general best practices, immunization strategies, and specific information about vaccine-preventable diseases and the vaccines that prevent them. Each video will also include recent updates from the Advisory on Immunization Practices meetings.

The intended audience is all immunization providers, and continuing education will be available for each video. Due to COVID-19, the videos will be on demand and prerecorded rather than live. No registration is required, and videos will be released on Wednesdays through October 14. Videos can be accessed here.
