"Dr. Slots was truly exposed to the idea of vaccine hesitancy while in residency. A consistent thread amongst providers was that many were uncomfortable with the discussions. Dr. Slots wanted to be able to approach vaccine hesitant parents with confidence so she started learning more about the topic - reading books, attending webinars, reviewing research. A strong provider recommendation is the most important aspect when addressing the care of a patient, which includes vaccination. Dr. Slot’s goal is to help providers become more comfortable addressing vaccines and vaccine hesitancy with their patients and their families." - Navigating Vaccine Hesitancy
