Improving Vaccination Awareness and Administration: Increasing Hepatitis B and Pneumococcal Vaccinations

The 2017 Statement of Work requires that ESRD Networks work with at least 10% of facilities with lowest vaccination rates for Hepatitis B and/or pneumococcal disease, with a maximum of 25 facilities. As such, 25 facilities were chosen for intervention: 10 Alabama clinics, eight Mississippi units, and seven Tennessee units, based on 2016 vaccination data as recorded in CROWNWeb. Project goal is to identify barriers to vaccination and work with each facility to achieve vaccination rates of at least 60% for each vaccine.
