MEMBER TEXAS PRESS ASSOCIATION Thursday, January 6, 199 Fh u r s OR CHILD'S HEALTPI JOt/ Survey Shows Parents Want Simplified Immunization Process (NAPS)--A recent Gallup sur- vey confirms that public under- standing of preventable childhood diseases needs to improve if the U.S. is to increase its national immunization rate, which lags behind 69 other countries for chil- dren under age two. The survey also reveals that many parents would be more inclined to have their children fully immunized if they could get the same protection with fewer injections--a wish that recently became reality with the U.S. introduction of a new four-in- one combination pediatric vaccine. "The lack of awareness and education for diseases such as Haemophilus b disease is just one of the hurdles we face as the inci- dence of certain childhood illness- es in this country rises," said Virginia Burggraf of the American Nurses Association (ANA), which co-sponsored the survey with Lederle-Praxis Biologicals. "Be- yond education about disease, par- ents need to krow more about pediatric vaccines, how often they should be administered and their side effects." The survey found that many parents are not knowledgeable about vaccines, and are not aware that multiple doses are needed to provide adequate protection. In addition, some parents are reluc- tant to immunize Lheir children because of the traunta a child may experience with immunizations. Survey respondents overwhelm- ingly (86 percent) said they would I ' SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS I A majority of parents were not aware that their child requirl immunization against nine serious diseases soon after birth. FI example, 59 percent of respondents didn't know that children shou receive their first immunizations against pertussis (whooping cougl a potentially fatal disease, by two months of age. Thirty-six percent of parents mistakenly believe that Haemophih b disease (meningitis) vaccine protects children in one visit. Forty-seven percent of respondents were not aware that polio contagious. Thirty-six percent and 32 percent, respectively, of parents su veyed did not realize measles and pertussis can be fatal.
