This webinar is convened by NCQA in partnership with CDC, the American Cancer Society, and the National HPV Vaccination Roundtable and is being held on International HPV Awareness Day.
As of February 14th, overall Vaccines for Children (VFC) provider orders (other than flu) are down by almost 10.9 million doses with MMR/MMRV down by 1.4 million doses.
Overall adolescent vaccination orders are down 17-22% due to the pandemic impacts in 2020. It is crucial that we ramp up adolescent vaccination earlier than usual in 2021 to catch up and ensure a safe return to in-person schooling.
