Christina Wells, MD, MPH, FAAFP and Santina Wheat MD, MPH, FAAFP discuss challenges and opportunities when vaccinating pediatric patients in the ages five to eleven and why we really do need to focus on this younger population. They share some of the most common conversations they are having with parents of this age group.

Learn how you can use every interaction with your patient as an opportunity to find out what parents are thinking and to be able to find the real reason that they're worried or resisting the vaccine.  Then provide the appropriate information that might help them decide to vaccinate in the future.  

Drs. Wells and Wheat also share suggestions to help get parents to bring in their kids to complete the vaccination series after they have received the first dose in your clinic.  

Additionally, they will explore ideas for working with partners to get kids vaccinated in locations outside of the clinic.
