Immunization Resource Center

As community immunizers, VNAs provide a key public health service through a wide range of activities, such as conducting flu and travel health clinics, serve as front line responders for pandemic outbreaks, and provide public education/wellness clinics regarding the safety and efficacy of vaccinations. VNAA supports its member agencies through national contracting to reduce the cost of delivering flu vaccinations, education and telecons/Webinars on best practices for delivering vaccinations, and partnering with other national health organizations to deliver a unified message on the importance of immunizing all segments of the population.
