The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (healthypeople.gov) has identified 42 topic areas affecting population health. One of these is immunizations, which includes maintaining or increasing vaccination rates. Traditionally, the medical, nursing and public health professions provide immunizations and related education. Given that only a small group of health professions have been actively engaged in the process, the question arises: What would the impact on health be if there was a consistent public health message supported by more health professionals? Asking these non-traditional healthcare service delivery questions can be precursors to health system transformation through collaborative practice.
