However, a new trend on the rise has many parents deviating from the recommend vaccine schedule – or simply disregarding it altogether. According to a new study from the Kaiser Permanente Colorado Institute for Health Research, 49 percent of children between the ages of 2 and 24 do not receive all of the recommended vaccinations or do not get vaccinated at all.
