Family Voices Want to Know What You Think

In partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, Family Voices, Inc. (National) is hosting 3 focus groups for families of #CYSHCN to learn about what they know and what more they want to know about flu vaccines.  The focus group will be held virtually, in English, on April 28 from 3 to 4:15 pm. Families will receive a $125 stipend in thanks for their time. Please complete the survey on the flyer linked below if you are interested, and share with others in your networks!

Family Voices and the American Academy of Pediatrics want to know what families think about influenza (flu) vaccinations for their children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN).
When it comes to flu vaccines for CYSHCN:
•What information does your family want to know?
•What concerns might your family have?
•What type of messaging would help your family understand the importance of a flu vaccine?
•How would you like to learn about flu vaccines to make an informed decision for your CYSHCN?
•Who is your most trusted source of information about the importance of a flu vaccine for your CYSHCN?
Families Voices is convening a focus group to learn what families know AND what else they want to know about flu vaccines for CYSHCN.
•The focus group will be virtual, in English, and will last 75 minutes.
•Participants will receive a $125 stipend in recognition of their time.
• The information learned during the focus group will be shared with the AAP. Your name and any personal identifying information about your child and family will not be shared or reported.
To be eligible to participate, you must be:
• 18 years or older and the parent/caregiver of a CYSHCN that is younger than 18 years old.
The Focus Group will take place on:
Wednesday, April 28, 2021. 3 4:15pm ET; 2 2:15pm CT; 1 2:15pm MT; 12 1:15pm PT
If interested, please complete the survey at Families by 8pm Wednesday , April 21.
Note: Invitations to participate in the focus group will depend on your child’s diagnosis, geography, race, and ethnicity to ensure we hear from families who are representative of the population of the country. Only the focus group participants will receive a stipend.
