U of L doctors hope to decrease number of necessary vaccines for children

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- University of Louisville doctors are taking a shot at reducing the number of necessary vaccines for children.

A new combination vaccine is in the trial stage. Doctors say it may mean an infant receives one-to-four fewer shots.

It's been tested on nearly 1,500 children in several centers across the U.S. Researchers say so far it has been effective, safe and well-tolerated.

The new vaccine is currently under review by the Food and Drug Administration.
