Immunization Education for Health Care Providers

In partnership with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), the Immunization program offers continuing education classes to health care professionals to improve knowledge and understanding of immunizations and related issues.

Our Public Health Nurses, approved by MDHHS as Immunization Nurse Educators (INE), provide the classes, which vary in length and are available during the lunch hour period. The classes are at no charge to the provider office, and nurses can receive continuing education credits, while others can receive a certificate of attendance.
