Session Type: ACR Poster Session A
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Methods: A retrospective review of the electronic health record (EHR) was performed to identify consecutive adult RA patients from January 1, 2016 to March 31, 2016 whose primary care physician (PCP) was within the affiliated health care system. Influenza vaccinations were captured only for the 2015-2016 flu season. In addition to the ACR recommendations for pneumococcal vaccinations, we determined the number of RA patients receiving the entire Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended pneumococcal vaccination series. EHR review keywords included “vaccination,” “immunization,” “pneumococcal”, “flu”, “hepatitis”, “zoster” and whether vaccinations were offered, or refused by the patient.
