Information Parents Need on Vaccines and Their Child's Health
Date:3/2/2009

CINCINNATI, March 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As an increasing number of parents are choosing to delay, or even refuse, childhood immunizations for their children, many pediatricians are concerned parents do not fully understand the potential dangers to their children and others.

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center has created a video and Q&A with Robert Frenck Jr., MD, staff physician in the Division of Infectious Diseases, to provide evidence-based answers to questions many parents have regarding vaccine safety.

In an excerpt from the video, Dr. Frenck answers the question: Why are Childhood Immunizations important?

"These diseases are not gone. The only thing keeping them away is really our immunizations. In Great Britain there was a large decline in the number of children receiving the MMR and they saw large outbreaks of measles and children died... A lot of people say let them get the diseases because these are just childhood diseases, every child gets them, they're ok. And that's true, that's what happened before we had immunizations, all of the children got the diseases, but a lot of them died."

The video and downloadable Q&A are both available at www.cincinnatichildrens.org.
