Views on Vaccination

VACCINATION / IMMUNIZATION

A few folks associate the word “natural” exclusively with “no shots”. While I am open to alternative schedules and working with the parents, I am foremost an advocate for the child and hence I do recommend vaccination. I primarily use preservative-free vaccines. The safety & benefit from these vaccines far outweigh the tragedies of not vaccinating which I have experienced first hand. Thus, my motto “Prevention is better than cure“.

That being said, we recognize that there is a controversy surrounding vaccination.  Over the past several years, many people have chosen not to vaccinate their children with the MMR vaccine after publication of a publication (later retracted) that the vaccine caused autism. It is patently false, misleading and discredited by numerous subsequent studies. If you want an authoritative look at that research, please read this here.

We are making you aware of the facts not to scare you or coerce you, but to emphasize the importance of vaccinating your child. We will do everything we can to help you understand, allay your concerns, and work with you on a mutually acceptable schedule to protect our precious little ones.

Please note that I am not saying this purely from medical training. I grew up with kids around me afflicted by polio and being disabled for life. I have cared for children with heart and kidney damage caused by Diphtheria. Anyone who has witnessed smallpox would not wish it even on their worst enemy!

We have two options:

a) Either raise our kids in a bubble so that they are never exposed to such deadly killers

b) Immunize and protect them.
