Parents trust doctors 'a lot' about childhood vaccinations
The vast majority of parents trust their doctor “a lot” when it comes to advice about childhood vaccines and their safety.
Other trusted sources include healthcare providers and government vaccine officials and experts, a survey of 1,552 American parents has discovered.
Further down the list of trustworthy sources came family and friends, and parents whose own child had been damaged by a vaccine.
WDDTY wonders if doctors would be as trusted a source in the UK where they are paid to keep up their quota of vaccinated children.
