In today's Health Matters, More parents are skipping or delaying vaccines for their young children. Twenty-eight percent of parents think it would be safer to delay the shots until children are older.
That's according to a new study published in the journal Pediatrics.
Parents are concerned about side effects from the vaccines which are rare.
The Measles-Mumps-Rubella Vaccine, given at 12 months then again at age four, is the one parents are most likely to delay. That is leading to a rebound of some diseases.
This year has seen more cases of measles than any year since 1996.
