Doctors Urge Parents to Have Children Vaccinated for Measles
Pediatricians say the decline in vaccinations in some states is due to parents that don't believe in vaccinations.
They also say measles isn't restricted at any age group. It can effect adults as well as children.
The first dose of MMR is supposed to be given at age 12 to 15 months.
"Parents at times have had misinformation about possible relationships of MMR vaccine to autism and other things that those concerns are not well found. But that has caused a decrease in immunizations.
The CDC says there were 644 cases of measles in the U.S. last year. The recent measles outbreak began in California.
