ConclusionThe low rates of immunization could reflect the RRT's clinics knowledge about the vaccines guidelines and its application on daily care. We suggest an integration between transplant center and RRT clinics, through lectures, periodic checking of vaccination cards, and easy to follow guidelines in order to provide a better vaccine coverage and to obtain higher immunization rates.This article is protected by copyright.
