Study: Millions of American adults not up-to-date on CDC recommended vaccines

You may have gotten the flu shot this year, but did you get any other vaccinations?
Syracuse (WSYR-TV/ABC News) - You may have gotten the flu shot this year, but did you get any other vaccinations?

Millions of American adults aren't up to date on the 11 different Center for Disease Control recommended vaccinations.

Researchers surveyed 600 primary care doctors asking what they believed were the biggest barriers to getting everyone vaccinated.

Some doctors blamed financial constraints, which often prevent clinics from being fully stocked on all recommended vaccines.

Others said it is often difficult to keep track of what shots their patients have already had.

Next time you visit your doctor, you are urged to take a moment to review your immunization history to make sure you are up-to-date on recommended vaccinations.
