Before you Vaccinate
I had been gung ho about vaccinating my son. I've been terrified after reading/hearing about numerous deaths associated with H1N1 that I've become, like so many other mothers, extremely frustrated with our system for taking so long to begin manufacturing these ever so important H1N1 vaccinations. But how safe are they? After watching this video with Dr. Manny and Deidre Imus, I must confess-I came to agree with much of what she was saying. The fact that Autism Specturm Disorder (ASD), ADD/ADHD, Asthma-these conditions have skyrocketed in the past 20 years. And if you think about it, the number of vaccines we so willingly give our children has skyrocketed as well.
In terms of the H1N1 vaccine, we often focus on the number of deaths, which is absolutely heartbreaking and unfortunate. I couldn't even imagine what these families are going through. However, the media does not even mention those who have contracted H1N1 (children and adults alike) who are just fine.
If you are planning on vaccinating your child, click the link to watch this video. Imus brings up some good points to think about before jumping on the H1N1 vaccine bandwagon.
