Use these Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) resources for conversations with parents about vaccines

Making time to talk with parents about vaccines during the well-child visit may be challenging. Here's some help: CDC, AAP, and AAFP created these materials to help you assess parents' needs, identify the role they want to play in making decisions for their child’s health, and then communicate in ways that meet their needs. These resources are collectively called Provider Resources for Vaccine Conversations with Parents.
