1 in 4 U.S. Toddlers Improperly Vaccinated
Date:4/29/2008

far, smallpox has been completely eradicated from the planet thanks to immunizations, while great gains have been made with measles and polio.

"People just need to keep their vigilance up," Frenck said. "We need to continue to review shot records and to go over it with parents whenever they come in. Opportunities for vaccination are missed a lot of times when kids come in for one reason or another, and we don't look at the immunization record. We need to continue to try to immunize kids whenever we have the opportunity."
