Washington State Encouraging Vaccinations

The vast majority of parents get their kids vaccinated, but a persistent minority decline to do so.
Their reasons vary: Some continue to worry about a link with autism even though research supporting a connection has been completely discredited. Others are concerned about side effects, or they say they don't believe that the diseases the vaccines prevent are really all that serious.
Persuading recalcitrant parents is a problem that public health advocates
continue to wrestle with.
