In this report, the National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) discusses maternal immunizations best practices, as well as gaps to implementation recommendations.

Public health and health care partners can support efforts promoting new payment and delivery models, patient-centered medical homes, and accountable care organizations.
