The latest information on the immunization schedule for children in the United States is on the American Academy of Pediatrics Web site: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2013/01/23/peds.2012-3706.full.pdf+html. Check out the Iowa immunization certificate at: http://idph.iowa.gov/Portals/1/userfiles/39/Certificate%20of%20Immunization%202013%20%28final-2016%29.pdf .
Consider what would happen if a child were not immunized by this schedule. What might occur? What might occur if the child that was not up-to-date on his or her immunizations was in a preschool or school with children who had completed their immunizations? What might the repercussions be for the other children?
One of the reasons that children do not get immunized is lack of access. Another reason is the fear of autism. Read the following articles: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/autism.html and https://autismsciencefoundation.org/what-is-autism/autism-and-vaccines/ and internet search to find recent news or articles on the topic of childhood immunizations. What did you learn? Interpret this information based on your knowledge of psychological research methods and use scientific reasoning. Discuss whether you would advocate for the current immunization schedule or suggest alterations. In your post, also include any weblinks you found and discuss any relevant information from them.
