Patient Education

At a Glance

Photograph of a doctor speaking with a patientOn this site you will find a variety of educational information about vaccines and the diseases they prevent. For each vaccine, you can access information about who should receive the vaccine, when it should be administered, and what patients or parents should know about it. Immunization providers can also find more general information on vaccine administration as well as tips on how to talk to your patients about vaccines and address their concerns.

The information is in various printed formats—flyers, booklets, fact sheets, posters—and includes links to other useful websites. CDC materials are not copyrighted and can be downloaded, copied, and distributed to patients. Some items can be ordered through an online ordering system.

Immunization educational materials are intended to complement personal education and advice from the healthcare provider. Informed patients, working together with their healthcare providers, are the key players in keeping themselves and their children healthy and protecting the health of the public.
