Info For Health Providers

Info For Health Providers

Health Providers

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.

For a collection of resources that can help answer the most common questions and concerns about vaccines, see our Resources for Common Questions page.
