Admission to hospital provides an important opportunity to consider immunization for all patients. For patients without regular sources of care or those followed in specialized clinics, the only opprtunities for immunization may be during hospital outpatient visits or hospitalization. Emergency department visits in particular should be used to check imunization status and immunize if neccesary.
