Registration for the 19th Annual Massachusetts Adult Immunization Conference is open!
This event, to be held May 20, 2014 at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA attracts professionals from local public health organizations, long-term-care facilities, pharmacies, college health, hospitals, physician practices, community health centers, employers, health insurance plans, vaccine manufacturers, and more.

Goal: To provide participants with the most current adult immunization information and encouraging the expansion of immunization activities in facilities, businesses and communities.
