Abstract

Providers believe vaccination rates at EMMC Center for Family Medicine can be higher. A resurgence in some preventable diseases is likely due to decreased immunization rates. While other preventable diseases have not seen a resurgence, the potential for outbreak exists if immunization rates remain low. Factors contributing to low immunization rates are misinformation, lack of awareness, cost, inconvenience, and infrequent office visits by adolescents.
