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

About the Grant Program

We are pleased to announce a new member-only benefit tailored to our Hospital and Health Systems and Medical Schools member sections.

The new competitive grant program* 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 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
