MAPA is a participant in the Adult Immunization Stakeholder Grant. Overseen by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), the purpose of the grant is to raise awareness of adult immunizations and to provide information to PAs to help increase vaccine administration to adults in Michigan. Vaccines that are necessary and targeted for adults (aged 19 years or older) include: MMR, Hep A, Hep B, Td, Tdap and Zoster.
