A lot of kids at the Silicon Valley daycare centres run by big tech companies are not completely vaccinated, according to a Wired reportciting California state statistics.
For instance, Wired found less than 50% of the kids at one Google daycare have their full recommended slate of vaccinations.
A Google spokesperson told Wired the numbers based on old data, and that the day care centres had vaccination rates of 81% and 98% in 2013 and 2014.
But Wired also found other tech company day cares in Silicon Valley with low vaccination rates, including Pixar (43%), Cisco (55% at one facility), and IBM (just over 70%).
Vaccinations have been getting extra attention lately because of a growing measles outbreak in California that began in Disneyland.
The measles outbreak reached downtown San Francisco on Wednesday, according to SFGate.
The blog said a LinkedIn employee with measles may have traveled to and from the company’s offices on BART, San Francisco’s commuter rail system.
