Are doctors paid by pharmaceutical companies to give vaccinations?

No, doctors are not paid by pharmaceutical companies to give vaccinations. Their only incentive to recommend vaccination is to keep your child healthy and protected from serious diseases.

As experts in kids’ health, doctors make recommendations based on years of studies, scientific research, and firsthand experience treating illness. They know the many proven life-saving benefits of vaccines.

The truth is doctors often lose money on vaccines. A study published in the Journal Pediatrics shows that the costs of giving vaccines exceeded the amount that the insurers and health plans reimburse to cover the cost of administering the vaccine.
