The present study aimed to quantify parents’ perceptions on vaccination issue. The quantitative survey was carried out through the distribution of an “ad hoc” questionnaire designed anonymously, created with Google Forms, administered online through social media and aimed at subjects with underage children who must undergo vaccination sessions. In the period from 23 March 2020 to 13 April 2020. The results demonstrated a substantially favorable opinion on the vaccination issues taken as a whole. In the vaccination field, the ideal moment in which to establish a good relationship between the nurse - educator and the parent is the pre - vaccination interview, in which the family is free to express their doubts and need to receive more information that can clarify non-specific topics well understood.
