The 4 Pillars™ Immunization Toolkit website provides you with background information and evidence-based strategies designed to help your practice towards the ultimate goal of increasing vaccination rates.
There are 3 main groups of links on the home page that you may use to navigate to the various sections of the 4 Pillars™ Immunization Toolkit. These groups of links are titled, "Slideshow Links," "Tabs," and "Detailed Icon Links." How to access and subsequently utilize these links is outlined in the help section titled, "Navigating the 4 Pillars™ Immunization Toolkit" Below, we have provided an explanation of these groups of links as well as additional features of the home page.
1. Slideshow Links
