40,000 to 50,000 adults die from vaccine-preventable
diseases each year in the U.S.
PHILADELPHIA, January 14, 2013 -- The American College of
Physicians (ACP) has approved a policy recommendation that all
health care providers (HCPs) be immunized against influenza;
diphtheria; hepatitis B; measles, mumps, and rubella; pertussis
(whooping cough); and varicella (chickenpox) according to the
Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) Adult
Immunization Schedule. ACP's policy exempts HCPs for medical
reasons or a religious objection to immunization.
"These transmissible infectious diseases represent a threat to
health care providers and the patients we serve, who are often
highly vulnerable to infection," said David L. Bronson, MD, FACP,
president, ACP. "Proper immunization safely and effectively
prevents a significant number of infections, hospitalizations, and
deaths among patients as well as preventing workplace disruption
and medical errors by absent workers due to illness."
With a severe flu season underway, ACP urges all adults to get a flu
shot if they haven't already and to talk with their internist about
other immunizations they might need. Only 39 percent of adults
received the flu vaccine during the 2011-12 season. People who
cannot get a flu shot or other immunizations for medical reasons
should talk to their internist about other ways of protecting
ACP is committed to improving public health through encouraging
appropriate immunization of adults. In August 2012, ACP was awarded
an initial $175,000 of a total $525,000 grant for 2012-13 from the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to create a
three-year, evidence-based program to increase adult immunization rates in five
states. In addition, the American Board of Internal Medicine
(ABIM) approved practice improvement credit for the Medical Home Builder adult immunization module
for recertifying physicians.
