Provider Vaccine Conversation Tools

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 the materials on this page 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 from the CDC and are collectively called Provider Resources for Vaccine Conversations with Parents.
