Parents Nervous About Vaccines

Survey Finds Most Parents Still Uneasy About Vaccinations

Parents are taking their kids in for "a little pinch," but they aren't happy about it. According to a study just released today, 95 percent of US children receive the recommended vaccines (on schedule), but 77 percent of parents are still uncomfortable with the shots. More than a year after the link between autism and vaccines was debunked, many parents are still voicing concern over the safety of the ingredients used in the vaccines. Other issues parents raised include the complexity of the immunization schedule, pain from the injection, and the number of shots tots get in one sitting.

Even if you follow the CDC's vaccination schedule, are you nervous about it?
