Plain Talk About Child Immunization, 6th Edition (2009)

Thank you for your interest in learning more about immunizations. As parents we are asked to make many important decisions concerning our children. Some of the most difficult decisions can be about their health care. To have your child immunized is one of these decisions.

Significant changes have been made to the sixth edition of "Plain Talk" including additional information on vaccine safety, current updated statistics, and questions about delaying immunizations. 

First developed in 1996 in response to requests by parents, health care professionals, school nurses, child care providers and others, this 54-page booklet provides parents with accurate information about immunizations and the diseases they prevent, benefits and risks and vaccine safety and effectiveness.
