Improvements in immunizations have been perceived as one of the greatest medical advances. However, recently, there has been increasing mistrust of the effects of vaccines on children. This chapter delineates how this decline in trust occurred, including sections on changes in policy, adverse events, myths, misinformation, and incomplete science. It describes ways that physicians can enhance the patient-physician relationship by increasing patient trust in vaccines and immunizations, through better communication and flexibility.
