Physicians “taking tougher stands” against vaccination refusals

USA Today reports that “many pediatricians … are taking tougher stands with parents who refuse vaccinations.”

Some “practices won’t even accept children as patients who haven’t had their shots.”

Other doctors will allow an altered vaccination schedule, although “most pediatricians follow the more compressed schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics.”
