April 23 through 28 is National Infant Immunization Week.
Healthcare professionals like you are on the front lines of the fight against vaccine-preventable diseases: research shows that parents trust healthcare professionals as a source of immunization information, and they make vaccine decisions before their baby is born.
We encourage you to remind parents and pregnant women about the importance of on-time infant immunization. Here are some resources that can help:
- Provider Resources for Vaccine Conversations with Parents: a suite of materials created by CDC, the American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP)
- A CDC slide deck you can use to with staff to discuss how to create a culture of immunization in your practice
- Getting Parents to Yes! Vaccine Conversations That Work for Providers & Parents, a CDC webinar
