A Note from Toronto Public Health

Vaccinations save lives. The success of vaccines means people have forgotten the consequences of diseases like polio, tetanus, and measles. A growing number of parents are questioning the safety of vaccines over what vaccines protect their children against. This Open Educational Resource will provide healthcare professionals and students some background on the issues of vaccine hesitancy and how to talk with vaccine hesitant clients.

It has been a privilege to contribute to a free and open online resource that is accessible to all nursing students and other health professionals. Toronto Public Health is grateful for this joint collaboration with eCampusOntario and educators across Ontario to enhance the capacity for new health professionals to rebuild and sustain public trust in vaccines.
