Why screen and immunize before discharge?
More than 50,000 adults in the United States die from vaccine-preventable diseases or their complications each year. Despite the availability of vaccines, many adults remain unvaccinated because they are unaware of the need for adult vaccines or are misinformed about vaccines and the diseases they are designed to prevent. Too often, your patients are discharged without appropriate screening and immunization.
