The AARC is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on a new CDC/National Vaccine Program Office survey aimed at learning more about student immunization policies in respiratory care educational programs.

The CDC asked the AARC to review the survey instrument, and also contacted CoARC for their input and a list of RT program directors nationwide.

According to the CDC, more than 50% of program directors across the country should have received a letter signed by AARC President Karen Stewart, MSc, RRT, FAARC, plus a link to the online CDC survey, in their emailboxes. We urge everyone who received the survey link to participate in this government effort to learn more about student immunization policies in the nation’s respiratory care educational programs.
