Wondering how your family measures up when it comes to vaccines? A new study this morning says nearly half of babies and toddlers receive vaccines late or not at all.
Researchers at Kaiser Permanente studied the immunization records of more than 300,000 children. They found nearly half of kids, ages two months to two years, did not get all of their vaccines, or they did not follow the recommended vaccine schedule.
Of the under vaccinated children, one in eight had parents who intentionally chose not to follow the vaccine schedule. They either asked the doctor to increase the amount of time between shots, or refused them all together.
