But it’s continues to be a topic of controversy, especially in light of the recent measles outbreak that stemmed from unvaccinated kids at Disneyland. Dr. Jaime Friedman of Children’s Physicians Medical Group (CPMG) recently wrote a very enlightening blog on the topic of immunizations, clearly explaining the difference between facts, myths and opinions. You can also easily look up immunization rates at San Diego area schools HERE.
