Literature has shown evidence that this disparity is associated with increased morbidity and mortality of common preventable illnesses within the community and increases health-care related costs for individuals, and on the state and national level.

Its primary goal is to assess the current adult vaccine barriers in Clinton County METHODS: Data obtained from the New York State Department of Health database was analyzed for estimation of adult immunization rates in Clinton County. Then a systematic literature review was conducted via Google scholar, PubMed, and the CDC to review prior recommendations and reports on adult immunizations. Survey tools were developed based on this literature for the assessment of vaccine knowledge and barriers with the Clinton County residents, physicians and pharmacies. RESULTS: The barriers toward adult immunizations in Clinton County the findings are consistent with the results of both past and recent vaccine administration research. CONCLUSION: Collaboration between public and private health care providers, along with pharmacy immunization practices would be best for efficient vaccine delivery in the adult population of Clinton County.
