It is just one example of how parents across the UK have hugely varying attitudes towards immunising their children against coronavirus.
Falkirk has 12,829 children in the age group, and, as of April 28, a total of 1771 had been vaccinated, giving a take up rate of 13.8%.
That gave the district the ninth lowest vaccination rate.
A Scottish Government spokesperson said: “To encourage uptake, we have produced a number of resources including a leaflet providing key information for parents and carers and a marketing campaign across radio and digital channels.”
