Extended Office Hours for Vaccinations

There are many reasons that vaccination rates in a community may drop. One of these reasons is lack of access to vaccinations. There are many parents/patients who are unable take off of work or leave their workplace for long period of time in order to take their children in during your office hours. This often results in missed or late immunizations. Physicians may want to consider implementing the following strategies to increase vaccine access for their patients. Some of these suggestions could be particularly useful during influenza season, when more people will need to be vaccinated in a shorter amount of time.
