Education and Training

Immunization recommendations are constantly changing. New vaccines are developed, vaccine recommendations are revised, vaccine shortages occur, and new immunization tools are created to improve provider practices. The Idaho Immunization Program offers education and training opportunities to help healthcare providers stay up-to-date on this important information.
