Pediatricians and other pediatric clinicians can protect children from influenza by discussing and recommending the influenza vaccine and by being prepared to administer it.
Every visit is an opportunity to administer and/or promote influenza vaccination, and to strengthen relationships with patients and families to encourage vaccine confidence. In addition, the AAP supports the coadministration of the influenza vaccine with other vaccines. Learn more about how to coadminister vaccines on CDC’s Vaccine Administration Route and Site page. Below are answers to questions and resources for the 2023-2024 influenza season to help you maximize influenza vaccination rates while keeping patients, families, and practice teams safe.
