MDHHS Fall Immunization Conferences

Find out what is new in immunizations!

These conferences have been offered annually for more than 20 years, and they have consistently received high ratings from attendees. Their primary goal is to update health care providers on immunization issues that affect people of all ages – from the very young to the very old. The half-day conferences will provide participants with a variety of practice-management tools, techniques and information that will help assure that all their patients are fully immunized.

The conferences are appropriate for physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, public health staff, pharmacists, physicians, physician assistants, medical and nursing students, and anyone interested in learning more about current immunization practice in Michigan.

While the conferences are intended for all immunizing providers representing diverse health care settings, physicians’ offices may benefit from this immunization update and networking opportunity. However, everyone is welcome to attend this conference, and health care professionals from a variety of settings will find this training opportunity beneficial.

MDHHS Fall Immunization Conferences will take place via zoom for only this year due to COVID-19 and the current limits on large group gatherings.

The registration fee for conference attendees is $25 per person.

Participants will select to attend October 22 or October 23, 2020. The program will run 8 a.m. to noon EST.

The registration process begins on September 7.   Registration will close at 5 p.m. on October 21, 2020.  As more details become available, they will be posted on this webpage. Stay tuned!
