Growing number of parents are not getting their teenagers vaccinated

Posted: Updated:

Researchers say a growing number of parents are not getting their teenagers vaccinated. A survey finds many parents don't believe the shots are necessary... even though they are physician recommended. About 16 percent of parents also have safety concerns  about the H-P-V vaccine and don't want their daughters receiving it. The American Academy of Pediatrics says doctors need to educate parents about the need for teenage vaccines.
