 As a nurse who works in a pediatric setting inpatient and outpatient, the issue that I observed is the increased delays and refusal of vaccination last year. When parents refuse to immunize their children, then it becomes a public health concern. At the same time, there are reasons why parents are opposing the immunization of their children. What are the possible reasons for this refusal? Can patient education improve the rates of vaccination? Is there a relationship between the MMR vaccine and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)? What are their concerns regarding vaccinations and what is its link with chronic diseases? Side effects of parents’ refusal to vaccinate their children have been on the rise in the last decade. The parent’s negative perception of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) because of its association with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

My PICOT questions are;

            In parents of children between twelve months and six years old (P), how does patient education regarding the importance of the MMR vaccination and the unlink relation with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) (I) equated with no education irrespective of the parental decision (acceptance/rejection) concerning vaccination (C) improve the MMR vaccination rates (O) in a period of six months (T).

Will influenza immunization compliancy rates increase if flu clinics are provided in a Flu PODS and immunization clinics at convenient times covering all shifts?

Track number of employees/volunteers coming at each hour time frame.

O- (Desired outcome): Increase of compliance of receiving the annual mandatory flu shot by employees and volunteers
