Talk with your child’s doctor about childhood vaccines

Like many parents, you may consider your child’s doctor the most trusted source for health information.

But you may not always know the best way to ask about the pros and cons of vaccines.

Don’t be afraid to speak up. You have questions about your child’s health. The doctor has answers. The important thing is to just get the conversation started.

Good to know:

If you have missed or delayed certain recommended vaccines for your child, the CDC has vaccine catch-up advice. Talk to your child’s doctor.

Start thinking ahead.

As questions come to you, jot them down or put them in your phone. Bring your questions on appointment day.

Heard something about vaccines that concerns you?

Be sure to bring it up. You need to know what’s real and what’s not. A doctor’s experience and training can help guide you to the right answers.

The answers you need are available.

If you have questions or concerns, even after the visit, be sure to follow up with your pediatrician.
