Abstract: Background - The field of immunizations has grown in recent years with the introduction of new vaccines for adolescents and adults. Despite these advances, adolescents and adults are often under-immunized and may be susceptible to the effects of harmful diseases. A need exists to expand venues in which adolescents and adults can receive vaccines, and to educate health care providers about the existence and importance of administering immunizations to these age groups. In particular, obstetrician-gynecologists (OB/GYNs) are in a unique position to make a significant impact on immunization education and vaccination rates for women of all ages. Yet, researchers know little about their vaccination practices and opinions about immunizations.
