As a mother who has chosen an alternate vaccine schedule, I fully understand both the benefits and risks of vaccines. My wish, more than anything, is that medical care providers would not dismiss my concerns as nonsense, much like this doctor, and many others do. The side effects are very real and need to be acknowledged. There is one very simple step that can be taken to mitigate many of these concerns: adjust the vaccine schedule so that they are spread out and not happening at the same time as developmental milestones. The alternate vaccine schedule that I have chosen for my children gives us the best of both worlds - protection again disease AND the relief of not risking my children's health. I highly encourage both parents and doctors to consider this alternative.
There's a surprising endorsement for e-cigarettes.
We worry about our student athletes suffering traumatic injuries, but "overuse" injuries are becoming more common.
The benefits of getting children vaccinated by far outweigh the risks.
