    Background: The statistics for child vaccinations in Sweden are high, only a few parents choose not to follow the Swedish vaccination program. However, previous studies show that parents can have questions and opinions regarding the vaccines content and effects. From the BVC nurses experience of the parent´s questions and opinions in relation to the vaccination of their child at the BVC, a BVC nurse can through this study be better equipped to meet parents. This should be able to contribute to creating additional sense of security with regards to the vaccination of the child. Goal: The aim of this study was to analyse the BVC nurses experience of a parent´s questions and opinions in relation to the vaccination of their child at the BVC. Method: The study has a qualitative inductive approach. Fourteen semi-structured interviews were carried out with BVC nurses that have worked at a BVC for a duration of one to 37 years. The data material was analysed with the help of qualitative content analysis. Result: The result shows that a parent´s questions and opinions more than ever tend to revolve around both handling traditional questions regarding pain and side effects and an ever more trending challenge as the high information stream that parents meet today. The result is summarised in two categories; Questions and opinions regarding whether to vaccinate or not and Questions and opinions regarding the vaccine and its consequences. Conclusion: Previous studies show that BVC nurses have experience with regards to the parents that have questions and opinions about vaccines. The study can contribute with considerate knowledge of how parent´s search for information and in such case gice possibilities for improvement.
