What is PROTECT™?

PROTECT™ (Supporting Appropriate Immunizations Across the Age Spectrum) is a multi-organizational educational initiative that consists of interconnected modules of varying learning formats, practice-oriented delivery channels, and outcomes measurement platforms. It is designed to provide effective and clinically relevant strategies to increase immunization rates for patients followed in multiple practice settings.

Nine partners, working in cooperation with a myriad of organizations, are collaborating on this important initiative to develop a comprehensive approach to intervene and provide educational and systems-based solutions to increase the immunization rates in the United States.
