About the Project
The goal of the AGS Older Adults Vaccine Initiative is to increase immunization rates in older adults who are eligible for routine vaccinations in the United States. AGS is one of seven specialty medical societies with a subaward under a Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS) contract with the CDC to increase adult vaccination rates (across all vaccines) in this country, called Specialty Societies Advancing Adult Immunization.
