Do children in the U.S. have to get more shots?

Today on CNNHealth, we take a look at the anxieties and doubts some U.S. parents have about the frequency and quality of vaccines administered to children. The reluctance to vaccinate has been theorized to be one of the reasons behind a whooping cough outbreak in California, which  claimed its 10th child victim today.

A Centers for Disease Control and Preventions committee on immunization practices is expected to meet next week. This committee makes recommendations for the routine vaccines for children and adults.

Some parents who've moved to this country from abroad say it feels as if the United States requires significantly more immunizations compared with other countries. Judging by the list below of scheduled immunizations, that's true for some countries, but not all. Here's a look at vaccine schedules around the world, based on information from the World Health Organization. To look up other countries, check out WHO's webpage.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
