If you are sensing agitation in the patient's mother you may just need to take a moment to make sure she is ok. Is she hesitant to give immunizations at all or simply having a bad day? Taking a few minutes out of your day to concentrate on her and her concerns may not only make her relax a bit but be more open to listening to what you have to say. People want to be heard not told. Once you are able to calm the situation you can pull up the computer together and show her where the child is due for their immunizations. You'll be ready to answer all of her questions and put her mind at ease so the rest of the appointment goes well.
