While 61% Report No Change in Parents’ Adherence to Recommended Schedules; Parental Reservations on the Safety of Vaccinations Remain
BOSTON, MA August 17, 2016—US pediatricians are reporting a steady rate of vaccination among their patients in the last year, although there remains a level of uncertainty related to developmental delays, and a lack of education on this topic among parents of young children. Data from a microsurvey performed by InCrowd, a provider of real-time market intelligence to the life sciences and healthcare firms.
“As back to school season elevates vaccination levels as a public health issue, the new data underscore that the time is now to continue the dialogue,” said Diane Hayes, president and co-founder of InCrowd. “Parent education regarding the safety of vaccines is imperative, with the CDC emphasizing that studies show no link between vaccines and autism, and the only study supporting a relationship being retracted. During August’s National Immunization Month and always, the data reassert the need for clinicians to make sure that parents fully understand the seriousness of the risk to their child is left unvaccinated.”
The data from InCrowd shows that:
o Developmental delays associated with autism, with 73% of pediatricians reporting their parents have expressed this concern
o Concerns of parents that too many vaccines are given at one time, was reported by 69% of pediatrician respondents
o Concerns over the ingredients in vaccinations, according to 51%, of the pediatrician respondents
