As NPR reported this week, a recent survey from the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health measured parents' reactions to day care vaccination policies.

Here are some of the survey's findings:

California law says children must be immunized in order to attend child care. The required shots vary by age, as you can see here. But as we know, there are exceptions to this rule, and many Southern California families have opted out of vaccinating their kids.

It all made me wonder: Would parents in Southern California respond similarly to this survey?

I've created a quick poll, using one of the questions from the National Poll on Children's Health. Please take it! As always, I also welcome your comments below or via e-mail, at Impatient@scpr.org.
