According to this week’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, many parents have opted to vaccinate their children for diseases like measles and poliovirus. Rates of coverage are on average at 90%. With the Mumps, Measles and Rubella (MMR) vaccine, 92% of children got their first shot, but 1/12 did not receive it in the correct time frame.
The most recent research by the National Immunization Survey (NIS) shows that, in 2013, vaccination coverage either increased or remained stable for all of the vaccines that are routinely recommended for children in this age group.
