The Arizona Department of Health Services cancelled a vaccination education program after getting hit with backlash from parents who don’t immunize their school-age children.

Arizona was one of only three states piloting this program, which was created in response to the increasing number of schoolchildren skipping school-required immunizations.

Debbie McCune Davis is the executive director for the Arizona Partnership for Immunizations and joined The Show to talk about it.
