Immunizations

The Joint Commission has established immunization guidelines based on recommendations from a 2006 National Quality Forum Immunization Workgroup.   These guidelines for influenza and pneumonia vaccination apply to all patients regardless of the reason they were admitted to the hospital.

Cedars-Sinai's performance compared to other medical centers and hospitals around the nation and the state are highlighted below. For more detailed information about specific measures, click on the links in the table below.
