Promoting the Importance of Infant and Childhood Vaccination Among Pregnant Women by Prenatal Care Providers
UArizona may submit one application.
The purpose of this notice of funding opportunity is to investigate the acceptability, feasibility, and effectiveness of promoting infant immunization during prenatal care visits, leading parents to vaccinate their children confidently. Prenatal care providers, including obstetricians and midwives, are trusted sources of information for pregnant women, yet many feel uncomfortable providing information or discussing concerns about infant vaccination because they may consider this to be outside of their area of expertise. This represents a significant missed opportunity to provide important information to pregnant women/parents from a trusted source at a critical time when research suggests opinions about childhood vaccination are forming.
