Not only do health providers administer vaccines, but the community looks to providers for answers to their questions about vaccine schedules and safety.
The CDC's immunization site for health professionals/providers provides both general and vaccine-specific information. CDC has also developed the #HowIRecommend Vaccination Video Series showing best-practice examples for conversations with patients about vaccines. IKC toolkits on the Resources tab of this site, and the buttons below, include specific resources for Tdap, Meningococcal, and HPV vaccinations.
