Are Your Child’s Vaccines Up to Date?

by The Kid's Doctor Staff

American children are not meeting the recommendations for childhood vaccines. Researchers from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention said more than 25% of children are not meeting the schedule created by the U.S. government.

The CDC said that 81% of children are meeting government recommendations, but children between 8 months and 3 years of age are not getting them on time or are receiving the dose too soon after the initial dose to be affective.

Elizabeth Luman of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases told Reuters “for the vast majority of parents, they’re bringing their children to get vaccinated and it requires a lot of visits to the doctor.” Luman sites one reason for children who are not on the recommended schedule “for parents who are busy, this can be logistically difficult.”

The CDC recommends several vaccines to protect children against diseases like measles, mumps, polio and chicken pox. For more information on the CDC’s vaccine schedule click on www.cdc.gov.
