To Immunize or Not to Immunize

Probably the truest comment I’ve ever heard about immunization is the following story.

A father was asked why he made  his choice.  This was his response:

Well, if I chose not to immunize my child and something happened, it would be my fault, and I couldn’t live with that.

Given that’s a pretty universal experience as a parent, it’s a brave parent who will choose not to immunize.

It is up to all of us to get as educated as we can so we can make the best choice we can imagine making.

One book I recommend is the late Dr Robert Mendelsohn’s – as a pediatrician he should know a thing or two
