During this archived one-hour webinar, you will learn about vaccination recommendations for infants, children and pregnant women; key messages regarding the immunization schedule, vaccines and vaccine safety; and you will receive an overview on how to review a child’s immunization record to determine up-to-date status of your WIC clients.
