AccuVax and Merck


 
 
AccuVax recently partnered with Merck to help increase adult immunization rates with the use of AccuVax.

This partnership is providing an opportunity for the OB/GYN and primary care clinics the use of our AccuVax unit at no cost. This is a unique opportunity for some of your clinics to safely house vaccines inside a AccuVax for free, eliminating a financial risk and workflow barrier that often plays an underlying factor in missed opportunities towards lifesaving vaccinations.

From the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology: 
→ Young-adult women in a study had missed opportunities for human papillomavirus immunization, and significant racial disparity was observed
→ Greatest frequency of missed opportunities occurred with visits for either contraception or for sexually transmitted disease screening
→ Several studies have demonstrated that most young adult women 19–26 years of age do not have antibodies to the high-risk HPV types most commonly associated with cancer and included in the vaccines
