Topic 1: Vaccinations

You are working in a community clinic where you have been assigned to provide measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccinations to children entering kindergarten. Your first patient is a 5-year-old female accompanied by her mother. The mother expresses to you, “while I was sitting in the waiting room, there were several other parents discussing vaccinations and how dangerous they are. After listening to the other parents, I’m now hesitant to have my daughter vaccinated because I’m fearful that something might happen. I don’t know if I should have my daughter vaccinated.”

What information could you share with this parent that would educate her about the importance and the safety of vaccinations? How would you provide this information?
