Alabama clinic recognized for success in immunizing adolescents

We are very proud of our staff for working together with our community to be the first practice in the state of Alabama to earn this recognition:

"The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH), Immunization Division, congratulates Pediatric Associates of Kellyton, which is part of Pediatric Associates in Alexander City, for being the first practice in the state to exceed the Healthy People 2020 adolescent immunization rate of 80 percent. " 

"Our goal is to have all pediatric clinics and health providers obtain 80 percent or higher coverage rates to protect adolescents from vaccine-preventable diseases and cancers. Currently, HPV vaccine is the most underutilized cancer-prevention vaccine with the biggest impact compared to all other vaccine-preventable disease vaccines," stated Dr. Burnestine Taylor, medical officer, Disease Control and Prevention, ADPH.

"It is wonderful to see a practice engaged from the front office staff to the back in the vaccination process. The providers’ staffs need to be educated to respond to parents’ questions about vaccines," stated Dr. Taylor. “It makes a real difference to the health of children and adolescents.”
