Campaign Aims to Tackle Routine Vaccinations Missed During COVID-19 Pandemic

The Keep Up the Rates campaign is aiming to encourage patients to catch up on routine vaccinations that might have been missed or delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an interview with Pharmacy Times, National Foundation for Infectious Diseases Vice President Jeffery Goad, PharmD, MPH, said the Keep Up the Rates campaign is aiming to encourage patients to catch up on routine vaccinations that might have been missed or delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Goad said these missed vaccines are a major concern, and data show that they could have a larger affect on minorities or other underrepresented groups. In order to help pharmacists and other providers tackle the problem, the Keep Up the Rates campaign is providing infographics and other resources with which to educate patients.
