Physician Recommendations for Vaccines Lagging

By | March 9th, 2012|Injury to Child|

A recent study showed that pediatricians and family practice doctors are frequently failing to advise their pediatric patients to obtain important vaccinations against a number of preventable diseases.  Sadly, the study shows that the young patients and their parents would readily agree to the vaccine, if only they are told.  You can read more here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22265117?dopt=Abstract.
