A new survey puts Colorado second-highest for parents refusing vaccines for their kids, a trend that increasingly troubles state health officials.
Vaccine advocates in Colorado said the Associated Press tally of vaccine refusals reflects an abysmal state rate for preventive shots. They said Colorado’s education system makes it too easy to opt out of shots, and a highly educated population is rejecting vaccinations out of too much bad information.
Parents still cite a fraudulent autism study when refusing shots in Colorado and other states, said Dr. Simon Hambidge, director of general pediatrics at Denver Health Medical Center.
