Health care providers play a pivotal role in educating parents about immunizations, helping them make informed decisions about immunizations in infants and toddlers, and teaching them to read and understand the importance of immunization records.  The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) has developed an educational resource targeted towards parents that specifically addresses frequently asked immunization questions.  The resource includes streaming videos available for access by practitioners and parents.  Questions regarding combination vaccines, immunization schedules, parent/child anxiety and common misconceptions are answered in a conversational setting between parent and health care provider.  NAPNAP invites all health care providers to visit the Immunization Conversations videos and share this resource with parents of infants and toddlers.
