-Why Vaccinations Are a Healthy Choice for a Strong Immune System addresses top concerns from parents about vaccines to help them make informed and healthy choices for their children.

-Tips for a Positive Immunization Experience encourages parents to take steps before, during, and after a vaccine for a better immunization experience.

-If You Choose Not to Vaccinate Your Child, Understand the Risks and Responsibilities, describes steps parents of unvaccinated children should follow.
