Vaccination Extremes

If only it were all that simple. Their point is well made but there are considerations for individuals and for public health that are not addressed. The intelligent course of action lies somewhere between the two extremes. I would suggest that parents should consult a physician who will assist them to actively choose which vaccines to give your child, and when. If you allow the federal guidelines to dictate your behavior, you are letting the vaccine industry sell you some vaccines that you may not want, and you may hurt your child with the injections. There are plenty of issues besides autism. If you choose to avoid all vaccines out of fear, you are contributing to epidemics and disease resurgence that we are already beginning to see. The middle road is not easy to find, and it is different for each person based on their individual risks and strengths.
