Osteopathic Primary Care Immunization Roundtable

Stanley Grogg, DO, FACOP, Project Director

The American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP) hosted an historic event at OMED in Anaheim on September 18, 2016 by gathering representatives from the osteopathic profession’s primary care specialty colleges to discuss unique immunization updates for each specialty.  As a follow up, a second vaccine roundtable was held on October 8, 2017 in Philadelphia at OMED 2017. 

The second roundtable meeting was to solidify the primary care group’s e-publications with additional information for coding, vaccine hesitancy and future vaccines. Each osteopathic primary care specialty discussed previously assigned topics.
