Knowledge Gaps in Updated Adult Pneumococcal Immunization Recommendations

Pfizer  Global  Medical  Grants  (GMG)  supports  the  global  healthcare  community’s  independent  initiatives (e.g.,  research,  quality  improvement, or  education)  to improve  patient  outcomes  in  areas  of  unmet medical  need  that  are  aligned  with Pfizer’s  medical  and/or  scientific  strategies. responsible Pfizer’s  GMG  competitive grant  program  involves  a  publicly  posted  general  Request  for  Proposal  (RFP) that  provides  detail  regarding  a  general  area  of  interest,  sets  timelines  for  review  and  approval,  and  uses an internal  Pfizer  review  process  to  make final  grant  decisions.  Organizations  are invited to submit  an application  addressing the  knowledge  gaps  as  outlined in  the  specific  RFP. 

Through this RFP it is our intent to support educational programs that address knowledge gaps for health care providers in the updated adult pneumococcal immunization recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The updated recommendations are for adults 65 years and older and for adults ages 19 to 64 with certain underlying medical conditions or other risk factors.  

While all educational activity types will be considered through this RFP, given the current uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic, programs that include creative virtual (online courses, digital tools, etc.) or printed materials will be prioritized.
