"A vocal few Canadians hold anti-vaccine views, but they are not the main reason for insufficient childhood vaccination coverage across Canada, finds a new report from the C.D. Howe Institute. In “In Need of a Booster: How to Improve Childhood Vaccination Coverage in Canada,” authors Colin Busby, Aaron Jacobs and Ramya Muthukumaran, suggest that a much more sensible strategy to reverse falling vaccine rates among Canadian children would be to target parents classified as “fence-sitters” – those who partially but  not fully immunize their children." - C.D. Howe
