Add a "V" to those "ABCs"—or you could be losing some business.
A large majority of parents say they would consider yanking their kids out of a day care provider if they found out that even a minority of children there were not up to date with their vaccinations, according to a national poll of parents.
And the vast majority of parents "strongly agree" or "agree" that all kids in day care centers should be vaccinated, and that providers should review that immunization status annually, the poll by the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital at the University of Michigan found.
Just 1 in 10 parents support allowing a kid without any vaccines to attend day care, with or without a waiver.
The poll, which was highlighted by an NPR report on Monday, questioned parents of kids up to the age of 5. The survey's results struck researchers with the level of worry parents had about a lack of vaccinations or adequate booster shots.
