Thanks for the post, Laura. As a pediatrician, I agree. I think we forget how important the concept of herd immunity is to our children who are too young or to those who are too sick to be vaccinated. Vaccination protects those who cannot be vaccinated.
So sad for those children, especially the four-month-old , who is ill due to his parents’ decision. We are all influenced by the media, our community and people we know… so kudos to you, Laura, for spreading the word on why vaccines are so important!
