Midwifery News;Jun2011, Issue 61, p39
The article presents a study which examines the attitude of parents on immunisation decisions in New Zealand. The study reveals that parents who had not fully immunised their child were not in contrast to the idea rather they wanted more reassurance, support, and information. The perspective that diseases no longer lay a danger to New Zealand children is one of the factors behind low immunisation rates.
