According to the surgeon general’s study released in June, fewer and fewer kids are receiving the vaccine for whooping cough. The report indicated that the vaccination rate for the MMR vaccine dropped from a peak of 91% in 2012 to 83% last year.

Dr. Larry Norton is a practicing pediatrician, and President of the Academy of Pediatrics, and speaks with Stuart Varney on why she was disappointed with the results.

“I was disappointed because it seemed that that report was missing important sources of information including vaccine efficacy,” said Dr. Norton.

Dr. Norton also mentioned what happens when you put the vaccination and autism hypothesis together.
