Don't Hesitate, Vaccinate!


Levels of vaccine preventable diseases are on the rise due to falling immunization rates, and registered nurses need to know not only what vaccines are recommended for pregnant patients and newborns, but also how to talk about immunizations with patients and caregivers. Nurses also need to know how to talk to patients about obtaining or keeping their immunization records with online immunization registries such as the Texas registry, called Immtrac2. Registered nurses will be able to identify vaccine preventable diseases, know when and which vaccines are recommended, and develop skills to address vaccine hesitancy through completion of this course.
