Parents Support Vaccinations but Limited Trust in Vaccine Safety

A new poll from Howard Univerisity finds more than 80 percent of parents want childhood vaccinations to be mandatory to attend school with special support for measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines.

More than half say the vaccinations are “very safe” for kids while 36 percent think they’re “somewhat safe” and 8 percent say they are not safe.

According to the poll, many parents don’t have a lot of trust in public health agencies.

Younger people between 18 and 34 were more likely to be less trusting of childhood vaccines compared to people who were older
