Pediatricians are the major source for providing influenza vaccine to children. Other pediatric clinicians can assist in this effort by discussing and recommending the influenza vaccine, and by being prepared to administer it to children who may not have other readily available sources to receive 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 the COVID-19 vaccine. 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 2022-2023 influenza season to help you maximize influenza vaccination rates while keeping patients, families, and practice teams safe during the pandemic.
