Parents need reliable information to recognize the continuing risks of vaccine-preventable disease and the value of vaccines. They need this information in the places they seek it: in their community and with their health care provider.
- Recognizing that most parents immunize their children, Vax Northwest is partnering with parents to share information on immunization with their peers in school, child care, and parent groups.
- Vax Northwest has developed tools and resources to support health care providers to identify and have productive conversations with parents who are hesitant about immunization.
We are scientifically evaluating our approach with the goal of sharing what we learn in Washington state and beyond.
