Immunizations Administering: The Texas Medical Association believes that vaccinations for children and adolescents should be given in an appropriate setting and administered after receiving informed consent from each patient or parent of a minor patient, including information on risks and benefits to such vaccinations. With the exception of influenza vaccinations, the TMA believes that vaccinations for children and adolescents should be given only under the direction of a physician licensed in Texas in the context of a preventive care exam, so critical aspects of health and development can be assessed as well. TMA recognizes the value of governmental public health centers and charitable outreach operations as vaccinators, and TMA encourages community vaccinators to participate in ImmTrac (BOT, p 17, I-95; reaffirmed CPH Rep. 2-A-08; amended CM-ID Rep 2-A-13).
