What the CPSTF Found

About The Systematic Review

Two studies qualified for the systematic review.

These results were based on a systematic review of all available studies, conducted on behalf of the Task Force by a team of specialists in systematic review methods, and in research, practice, and policy related to vaccinations to prevent diseases.

Summary of Results

  • One study, that used two versions of a brochure to provide information to clients, was associated with increases of 2 and 10 percentage points in the proportion of clients screened or vaccinated for hepatitis B.
  • One study, that used a brochure, found that rates for pneumococcal vaccinations among clients with at-risk medical conditions increased by 16.1 percentage points over clients who did not receive a brochure.
  • Although these studies did show improvement, the two studies by themselves provide insufficient evidence to determine if clinic-base client education is effective in increasing targeted vaccine coverage.
