Most U.S. Kids Get Recommended Vaccines: CDC

THURSDAY, June 9 (HealthDay News) -- Although nearly all American children get the recommended vaccinations to prevent serious diseases, many parents express concerns about the shots, and a small number refuse to have their kids inoculated, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Better education efforts could resolve those doubts, Kennedy said. Doctors need information on the value and safety record of vaccines so they can help parents make an informed decision.

Recent outbreaks of mumps, measles and whooping cough show that these deadly diseases still exist, Kennedy said. "Because of successful vaccination programs," many young parents don't remember when these diseases were epidemic, she noted.

The report is published in the June issue of Health Affairs.

For the study, Kennedy's team used data from the annual HealthStyles survey, which gathered information on parental attitudes toward childhood vaccination from 376 households.
