************SENIOR ADVICE TO YOUNGER STUDENTS!***************************
From Jonelle Roomes (Class of 2016): Be open minded about your education. 

CORRECT ANSWER to the Medical Question b) Check the website at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Reason: The CDC is the federal body that is ultimately responsible for vaccination recommendations for adults and children. A division of the CDC, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, reviews vaccination evidence and updates recommendation on a yearly basis. The CDC publishes current vaccination catch-up schedules that are readily available on their website. The lack of vaccinations is a strong indicator that the child probably does not have a primary care provider. If consulted, the pharmacist would most likely have to review the CDC guidelines that are equally available to the nurse. Reading the manufacturer's inserts for multiple vaccines would be time consuming and synthesis of the information could possibly lead to errors.
