A study this week from the American Academy of Pediatrics found children cared for by the Military Health System are less likely to be up to date on their immunizations, even though they have universal health care coverage. One reason might be that military families are constantly moving. But Defense health officials dispute the findings. They say military kids actually have higher vaccination rates, while also acknowledging they don't have the records to prove it. Dr. Amy Costello is the chief of immunization health care operations at the Defense Health Agency. She talked with Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu about why DoD thinks the study is flawed.
