[No authors listed]


The delivery and acceptance of recommended vaccinations is an ongoing challenge for health-care providers and health-care and public health systems, but specific interventions can increase levels of vaccination coverage. The Task Force on Community Preventive Services has conducted systematic reviews of 17 interventions designed to raise vaccination coverage levels in children, adolescents, and adults and made recommendations regarding the use of those interventions. This report provides a summary of the recommendations; informs readers of sources from which they can obtain the full review of the interventions and more detail regarding the application of the interventions at the local level; and informs readers regarding other work of the Task Force.
