    Reuters Health) - Education campaigns that aim to inform people about the benefits of vaccines do little to increase the intent of parents to vaccinate their future children, according to a new study.

    Furthermore, researchers found that among a group of parents who were least likely to vaccinate their future children, some education campaigns actually added to their reservations.

    The researchers also found the campaigns aimed at stressing the dangers of the preventable diseases only increased parents' misperceptions.
