A study of Portland children shows a disturbing trend.   An increasing number of parents are not getting their children immunized enough.  Parents are delaying the shots required by the Centers for Disease Control.

 

The study looked at the immunization records of 97,000 Portland children born between 2003 and 2009. It found the percentage of parents not keeping up with the required immunizations increased from 2% to nearly 10%.  Steve Robison  with the Oregon Health Authority is the study's author.  “A lot of parents hear real emotional accounts of risk and worry and they're trying to balance the risk and worry  and people saying don't do anything, with providers saying to get the shots.  Once you have the emotional concerns looking at more science doesn't help that.” 

 

According to the CDC, you're supposed to take your child to the doctor 9 or 10 times during the first year of life.  This study found the 10% of kids on the delayed schedule,  only received on average six vaccines.
