logo_35939On Monday, July 28 from 3:00 pm-4:00 pm ET, @CDCizlearn is hosting a Twitter #vaxchat with healthcare providers, state/local health departments, health organizations and medical associations on vaccinating teens and preteens. In this peer-to-peer conversation, we’ll identify barriers, relay strategies and share resources to better serve our families. RSVP at http://twtup.com/CDCteenvax.

The chat will follow CDC’s July 24 release of new data on vaccine coverage for U.S. teens. Let’s take this opportunity as a healthcare community to discuss overcoming obstacles and increasing the number of preteens and teens protected from vaccine-preventable diseases. Use the hashtag #vaxchat to participate.
