Specialty Societies Advancing Adult Immunization

A Cooperative Agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention


CMSS was awarded a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to improve vaccination among high-risk adults.

This five-year cooperative agreement, which began in September 2021, includes an estimated $55.5 million over five years to support increased COVID-19, influenza, and routine vaccinations in high-risk adults with chronic medical conditions, including patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and chronic kidney disease, as well as older adults and staff in occupational health settings. CMSS serves as the lead organization for this project and as a catalyst to work with 50  member societies, seven collaborating subspecialty members, and partnering healthcare systems to incorporate the CDC Standards for Adult Immunization Practice into clinical care and drive adult immunization through education, dissemination, and quality improvement initiatives.
