Needs Assessment of Nevada Pediatric Healthcare Clinicians
Thank you to the Nevada AAP members and prospective members who completed this needs assessment survey. While much of data was predictable, especially in terms of school and other mandates being a driving factor in vaccination rates, it was wonderful to see that 100% of respondents said they always present vaccines as the norm!
Pediatricians are a trusted source of health information! Your contact with families who are hesitant about receiving vaccines can influence their willingness to consider vaccination.
