VINE: Parents in wealthy AUS suburbs object to vaccinations for their children

In a Vaccination Information Network (VINE) post dated yesterday, a posted article informs readers about new research that shows parents in Australia are more often found to object to vaccinations for their children in wealthier Sydney suburbs.

The report, for the first time, also recorded the number of parents who have registered as conscientious objectors to vaccination.

According to some experts, parents in inner-Sydney may not complete their children's vaccinations because they travel or move overseas, are concerned about side effects or are influenced by information provided by anti-vaccination groups.

Julie Leask, associate professor in the school of public health at the University of Sydney, told the Sydney Morning Herald that, ''Parents on the north coast are subject to less acceptance because they don't like the idea of children getting so many vaccines so they pick and choose.''
