Why do some parents choose not to vaccinate their children?

The report comes as both Canada and the United States face another year of measles outbreaks such as one now underway in Washington State and OR, where support for anti-vaccination has been notable.

In 2015, at least 95 cases of measles were reported nationwide by the end of January.

This means that to achieve 95% immunity in the population for measles, vaccination coverage needs to be higher than 95%.

OH is one of 17 states that allow parents to opt out of required vaccines for philosophical reasons, and all but three states allow exemption because of religious beliefs, which more parents are taking advantage of. Of these, approximately 500,000 cases were reported each year to CDC; of these, 400 to 500 died, 48,000 were hospitalized, and 1,000 developed encephalitis (brain swelling) from measles.
