52% Concerned About Safety of Vaccines (Rasmussen Reports)
Sunday August 22nd, 2010
Vaccinations are common requirements for children all over the country in order to attend public school and college. However, half of American adults (52%) say they are concerned about the safety of vaccinations for children, including 27% who are Very Concerned.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 44% are not concerned about the safety of vaccines for children. But this includes just 13% whoa re Not At All Concerned.
Nearly one-out-of-three adults with children under 18 (32%) is Very Concerned about vaccine safety.
Still, 92% of those with children under 18 say their child has received all the vaccinations he or she is supposed to have.
