ChildVaxView for Health Care Professionals

Health care professionals play an integral role in preventing serious diseases through vaccination. You can reduce illness among children by recommending appropriate vaccinations at every health visit, taking the time to answer parent’s questions, implementing standing ordersExternal, and using reminder/recall systems.

Your work ensures high vaccination coverage in local communities and helps keep children safe and healthy. Learn how you as a health care professional can protect more children in your area.

Health care professionals may also be asked to help the NIS provide accurate information about childhood vaccinations. It is very important to continue to fill out the Immunization History Questionnaire (IHQ) for CDC to track accurate vaccination coverage at national, state, and selected local levels. The survey could not be completed without their dedicated support. Find the IHQ and other materials on the National Immunization Survey site.
