Competitive Grant Opportunity: Improving Pneumococcal Immunization of Adults with Immunocompromising Conditions

We are pleased to announce a new collaboration with Pfizer tailored to Alliance members within our Hospital and Health Systems and Medical Schools member sections.

The competitive grant opportunity focuses on Improving Pneumococcal Immunization of Adults with Immunocompromising Conditions through quality improvement (QI) initiatives that will result in an increase in pneumococcal vaccination uptake in adults with Immunocompromising Conditions.

This can be achieved through numerous strategies such as: 

  • Engaging interdisciplinary and interprofessional teams
  • Creating knowledge that builds capabilities and capacity
  • Quality improvement efforts which are system focused
  • Educational efforts that demonstrate public health improvement activities around adult immunization
