Abstract: A poster presentation regarding attitude and knowledge of parents on vaccination. Introduction: Despite vaccinations being a breakthrough in preventive care, parents’ decisions on vaccination programmes may be difficult. Study of parent’s attitudes and knowledge on the subject is important to identify the needs and issues parents have on the matter, especially the discrepancy between the perceived and actual knowledge of parents and the main reasons for missing vaccinations. Aims: • To assess attitudes, knowledge and perception of Maltese parents on vaccines, vaccine preventable illnesses and vaccination cost. • To develop an information resource which addresses the identified needs of parents and provides them with a medically sound information resource to help them make an informed decision.
