Most parents say their kids either already had.. or were going to get all their recommended vaccinations..
And most say they trust their doctor's advice on immunizations, two new surveys find.
Pediatricians and infectious disease experts call this good news.
After years of discussion about a supposed link between autism and the MMR, or measles mumps rubella vaccine, it seems parents are listening and getting their kids vaccinated.
93% say their kids either had or will have all the recommended vaccinations.
More than three-fourths say they trust their doctor's advice on immunizations.
Parents also trusted other health care providers and government vaccine experts, but not as much as doctors.
Both surveys can be found in the journal 'Pediatrics.'
