In today's health matters, more and more parents are delaying or even skipping vaccines for their children.
And, they're leaving their kids and communities at risk for what doctor's say are preventable diseases.
According to a nationwide survey more than one in ten parents vaccinated their children outside of the recommended schedule developed by the US centers for disease control and prevention.
Many parents claim they believe delaying vaccines avoids side effects and find that even some vaccines aren't necessary.
A study showed the most commonly skipped vaccines were the flu and chicken pox shots.
