National Enquirer - - HEALTH WATCH -

SEA­SONAL flu may con­tinue to be a deadly prob­lem now that a quar­ter of par­ents ques­tion the wis­dom of giv­ing their kids flu shots, ac­cord­ing to a na­tion­wide study of at­ti­tudes to­ward vac­ci­na­tions. More than seven in ten were com­fort­able with rou­tine vac­ci­na­tions, but 25 per­cent had reser­va­tions about flu shots.

“That one in eight par­ents are still con­cerned about vac­cine safety for both child­hood and in­fluenza vac­ci­na­tions is dis­cour­ag­ing,” said lead au­thor Dr. Allison Kempe of the Univer­sity of Colorado School of Medicine.
