There are some parents who believe they cause Autism, some believe they are cause of neurological disorders.
Well, I am on the fence on this one. Parents can choose whether to immunize or not. I personally chose immunization for my own child. The only problem I had was when the Pediatrician would say 5 shots. Whoa .. Hold on a minute there. 5.. Really. Even I can see that bombarding a young child or infant with so many vaccines seems a bit excessive. I told my Pediatrician I limited it to 2 per visit. I even held off on the MMR series until my son was 5 years old.
You, as a parent, have the right to limit how many shots your child will receive at each visit. Speak to your pediatrician and let them know where you stand. You do not have to allow your child be bombarded.
If your child attends child care you can write a note to be placed in your childs file that states your feelings and that the schedule will be XY and Z. You should protect your child with proper immunizations. Whooping cough was pretty much gone here. But, in other parts of the world it is still very much a problem the same with polio, measels, mumps and many other diseases.
In my next installment I will discuss Whooping Cough and other diseases that have been recently become a problem..
Until Next Time
Children are our future
