Should Each Non-Medical Vaccine-Exemption Cost $4,610?
According to a new report by Children’s Hospital Colorado, more than 9,400 children visited hospitals and emergency departments in 2017 for diseases that could have been prevented by a vaccine.
About 460 children were hospitalized and 8,656 kids were treated in emergency rooms for vaccine-preventable influenza, resulting in $42 million in charges, the report said.
Which averages a cost-per-patient of $4,610.
And, Colorado just reported their 1st measles case of 2019.
Measles is very contagious and even 1 case can lead to an outbreak, especially in places where vaccination rates are low, such as Colorado.
According to previous studies, when a local community is confronted with a measles virus outbreak, the fully-loaded, cost-per-patient is higher.
