I’m attacking the bear that is vaccines. Unchartered territory for this mama!
- So far I plan to read The Vaccine Book by Dr. Sears. Haven’t started yet, but it is high on my list of things to do.
- Review the Danish Childhood Vaccination Schedule which my sister recommended.
- Attend a vaccination education class being offered by a local nautropathc doctor. This is what their website said, hence my excitement … Every meeting will include both a discussion of the benefits to society of high levels of immunity in the community as well as an assessment of the pros and cons of each of the routine vaccinations. We assess the risks of the diseases, and the effectiveness and potential risks of the vaccines. We will also go over some strategies for minimizing the risks of vaccination. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and/or share their experiences. Other areas, such as possible connections to autism, autoimmunity, diabetes, etc may be discussed in response to questions or requests from the participants. We invite other practitioners and parents with significant experiences with vaccine reactions, etc. to share their experience, too. Our goal is to give a balanced account based as much as possible on scientific evidence, so that parents will be more knowledgeable about the issues and thus more confident in their vaccination choices.
What kind of research did you do in regard to vaccines? Any recommendations or resources to check out?
