Vaccine Safety in Perspective
The controversy surrounding vaccine safety is often blurred by emotion. I think we need to get back to a bottom line perspective on vaccine safety and our questioning of the aggressive current vaccination schedule. I subscribe to Dr. Jay Gordon's newsletter in which he recently wrote the following, wise words:
"Asking that cars be manufactured with more attention to safety and that driving is best when done safely does not make one "anti-car" or anti-driving. Asking for safer vaccinations and more judicious use of those we have does not make me or anyone else "anti-vaccine."
An important thought for the day, to secure the safety and health of our children. Let's be their voice. Ask questions. It's not about being anti-vaccine, it's about being pro-child.
