Pediatric and Adolescent Immunization:

Best Practices and Resource Guide for Federally Qualified Health Centers

Child and adolescent vaccinations are one of the most effective public health strategies for supporting healthy communities. Vaccinating children and adolescents protects them from serious infectious diseases and prevents them from spreading disease to others.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) convened a 12-month Learning Collaborative with Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), with the aim of improving rates of childhood immunizations. The Best Practices and Resource Guide for Federally Qualified Health Centers summarizes findings from the Learning Collaborative.

The Guide is written for FQHCs, care teams and organizations interested in using quality improvement principles to improve pediatric and adolescent immunizations rates. It contains strategies and best practices for improving performance on related measures, as well as ways to overcome barriers contributing to low vaccination rates. The Guide’s appendices contain additional resources, templates and worksheets readers can reference and use when conducting QI projects.
