Editor's Note

We asked clinicians to tell us whether parents in their practices have changed their views on vaccines since the measles outbreak in the United States earlier this year. We also report on what those professionals told us about their own struggles with such questions as how to provide quality pediatric care, how to protect other patients in their practice, and how to limit their own potential liability from any poor outcomes resulting from a decision to continue to provide care for unvaccinated children.
