Should Your Child Get Vaccinated? Doctor frequently recommend many immunizations for children. It seems a lot more than when we were kids.
It’s important for parents to seek a variety of resources in order to make a decision based on the what they feel is the best possible information. Here are two excellent Internet sites on vaccinations: The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has links to many informational sources. It is the oldest and largest national, non-profit educational organization (founded 1982) advocating reform of the mass-vaccination system.
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), which called for an end to mandatory childhood vaccines in 2000.
About ten percent of children in the U.S. now have learning disabilities. Many holistic physicians believe this is partly due to immunizations.
There are excellent alternatives to immunizations. If parents have done the basic research and want further information, they can discuss specific alternatives with a naturopathic physician, based on each child’s unique circumstances.
