Pediatrician warns of dangers of not vaccinating children

Jana Shaw, MD, MPHIllness and even death can result when children go unvaccinated, says Jana Shaw, MD, MPH, an associate professor of pediatrics and an infectious disease specialist at Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital. Modern vaccines are extremely safe – they do not cause autism -- and are designed to be given on a certain schedule, she says, explaining how unvaccinated children contributed to a measles outbreak in California. Shaw advises parents to follow reliable medical advice and to check with their doctor or school about children‘s required vaccines.
