A story on the Boston Globe, part of its specialty Stat publication, tells of a pushback by some doctors against the anti-vaccination movement:

More than 20 percent of pediatricians “always” or “often” turn away families who decline to get their babies vaccinated, according to a survey released Monday by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Even so, dismissing families from a practice doesn’t happen all that frequently. Most pediatricians said just a small sliver of their patients refused to vaccinate babies.

That second sentence is important; despite all the attention that places – like this blog, come to think of it – give the antivaxers, they’re a tiny subset of reality in most places.
