Pediatricians from 10 Baltimore-area hospitals and the city's health commissioner are urging parents to vaccinate their children against the measles. Some of the area's leading pediatricians converged Monday at a measles symposium at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to, in essence, put their foot down, saying the public is at risk when parents decide not to vaccinate their kids. "We stand here as pediatricians and public health leaders of Baltimore City and County to express our solidarity on the importance of childhood vaccination," Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen said.
