More Vaccine News

Posted by Sandra on March 3, 2009

http://health.usnews.com/articles/health/childrens-health/2008/12/11/a-parents-guide-to-managing-vaccinations.html?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_term=&utm_content=&utm_campaign=vn

I love that the CDC says, and I quote, “CDC recommendations aren’t set in stone; the agency advises doctors to “explore acceptable options,” if that’s what parents prefer, such as immunizing on an “alternative schedule” or delaying vaccinations until a child is closer to school age.”

People being advised by their doctors that there is only ONE way to vax your children need to be re-educated.  We’ve lost the meaning of the word “recommendation” and seem to think it means “must do it this way or else”. 

I don’t believe vaxes cause autism, per se.  I think they may trigger something that’s already there, but I don’t know.  That being said, it would be a rare occurrence, if it happens.  I do believe in fully vaxing my children (sans flu and chicken pox, which I don’t find necessary).  However, I don’t believe, after lots of research, that a little baby needs all those shots at one time – there’s no medical reason I need to overload her little immature system with so much at once, when it’s perfectly fine to spread them out.  I have friends that have been called stupid for delaying vaxes.  I had to leave my own family doctor of over a decade because she told me it would be “irresponsible” for her to delay vaxes.  Why is this ignorance and unwillingness to explore options so rampant?

Great article, I love that a major media outlet is supporting Dr. Sears’ book.
