Recommendations for Improving Maternal Vaccination Rates: Flu Resources
Patient Brochure on Influenza: This pamphlet was created by Pamela Meharry, PhD, CNM, University of Connecticut, and Marietta Vazquez, MD, Yale University, and is available for public use in English and Spanish.
ACNM surveyed its membership in December 2013 used the survey results to develop materials for midwives, including
talking points, and materials for women and their families. About 940
members responded to the survey. Over 80% of the respondents reported that they
either screen or provide immunizations to their clients. The biggest
information needs identified by the survey include lack of knowledge of the
safety of immunizations, talking points for clients,
contraindications/indications, updates on the schedule, and the state
Immunization Information Systems. Barriers for those not offering immunizations
were reimbursement, not enough interested patients, and not enough storage
space. This project hopes to address these needs.
Following the dissemination of ACNM's influenza
and immunization project materials, ACNM members were surveyed a second time in
order to gauge the effectiveness of the resources and to gain further insights
to improve immunization uptake among women. The final survey was sent out to
ACNM members in June of 2014. The results were used to target specific gaps and
guide the development of future resources.
