Immunizations

The development of vaccines has been one of the greatest public health triumphs in the past sixty years. Despite this, it is easy to find articles and blogs that attempt to point out the alleged dangers of immunizations. While these individuals may be well intentioned, they are performing a disservice to all children.

We believe that parents should make the final decision regarding immunizations, but these decisions should be based upon facts and not fear mongering. A brief period of research on the Internet does not outweigh decades of professional work conducted by experts in the field.
