Using an integrated medical-dental healthcare delivery model, Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research will develop and assess a multi-level intervention to promote recommendation of adolescent vaccines in the dental setting. The study will occur in the Kaiser Permanente delivery system in Oregon and Washington (KPNW). If successful, the proposed intervention will lead to strong recommendations for vaccination from dental providers, fewer missed opportunities for vaccination, and increased vaccination coverage rates.
