How do physicians immunize their own children? Differences among pediatricians and nonpediatricians

Published in Pediatrics. 2005, vol. 116, no. 5, p. e623-33
Abstract Immunization has an essential impact on public health worldwide. Numerous studies have shown the efficacy of different vaccines to protect individuals from various diseases. However, some parents choose not to vaccinate their children for reasons such as, among others, doubts regarding their usefulness, concerns over safety or efficacy, etc. Physicians are known to exert a direct influence on immunization rates by answering questions and clarifying misconceptions. Yet, it is unknown how they immunize their own children.
