Scenario 1Required health assessment required for this patient would include a detailed health history especially immunization history and past medical history. The physical examination will assess growth and development to ensure that height and weight are within expected range for age. The child would also be assessed for malnutrition and signs of abuse.To adequately respond to this scenario, I would interview the parents to understand the reason behind their choice not to vaccinate their child. The National Vaccine Information Center (2018), stated that children in some states can be exempted from vaccination due to medical reasons, religious beliefs, personal beliefs, or existing immunity. My response would then depend on the results of the assessment, and I would tailor the care and education accordingly. If the parents are not refusing vaccination due to medical reasons or existing immunity, I would provide education regarding vaccines and their role in protecting against disease. According to
