The surgeon at the centre of the US news stories about the sex-ed lessons being given in schools is calling for more children to be vaccinated, saying children in the country’s inner cities are still afraid.
Dr Richard Brown, the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, said children in those communities were still frightened about what they would be exposed to if they were exposed to the vaccine.
“Our children are still feeling the impact of the vaccine, and I think the fear that is still going through their minds, it’s very real,” he said.
“They still feel that they will be in the same situations as their parents.”
The issue of vaccine safety has been raised in the US and in Europe, where health officials have been criticised for their lack of clarity about how the vaccine would work in the most vulnerable groups.
A total of 690 people died in the United States as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, including 638 children, while in Europe the number of cases has been much higher, according to figures from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
More: In the US, the number was 447.
It is not clear how many children have been vaccinated in the cities of Miami and Atlanta.
Dr Brown said in an interview with ABC News on Thursday that he believed that parents should be more comfortable about vaccinating their children, and he wanted parents in the inner cities to feel safe.
“I want parents to be comfortable about taking their kids to school, because we are still learning from the past,” he told ABC News.
“The CDC and others say that we have not had a vaccine-preventable death rate since 1968, but they don’t really know the true cause of death.”
In a way, it makes it a lot harder for parents to do their jobs because we know the truth is that we are dealing with a lot of kids who are not going to be safe.
Dr Chris Dye, an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that if parents in a given area are scared, they should be able to take their children to school. “
There is not one death from a vaccine that we know of,” he added.
Dr Chris Dye, an epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that if parents in a given area are scared, they should be able to take their children to school.
“If you are a parent who is scared, then you should have that information in your head,” Dr Dye told ABC.
“We are working with parents to get a better understanding of the risk and the benefits of having children vaccinated.”
‘It was really hard to keep up’ Dr Brown’s comments come a day after the US Senate approved a bill that would allow states to begin allowing the administration of vaccines in schools.
The bill, which passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 219 to 165, would allow school districts to make exemptions from mandatory vaccinations for students and their parents.
It has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, who has long called for more school immunisation.
However, Mr Trump has yet to sign the bill into law.
