May 16, 2017: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released the General Best Practice Guidelines for Immunization online report, which is available on the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) web page. This online report  replaces the General Recommendations on Immunization, last published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) in 2011.

Tufts Health Plan adopted preventive health and prenatal guidelines from the Massachusetts Health Quality Partners (MHQP). The MHQP is a coalition of health care providers, health plans and purchasers that work together to promote improvement in the quality of health care services in the state of Massachusetts.
