As parent’s we have a lot of decisions to make on a daily basis. Vaccinations are one of the earliest and most nerve-wrecking decisions. This is due to the ambiguity around what vaccines actually contain. There are a lot of people going out of their way to make their concerns heard about vaccines. However, there are just as many people making it their business to portray anti-vaccination communities appear downright crazy! So where does that leave me as a new mom? It leaves me wanting to know more. It leaves me wanting to educate myself as much as humanly possible, because I have a little person counting on me.
Over the next few month’s I will research, discuss and post articles regarding the topic of vaccinations. I believe that there are others out there like me, who simply want to know whether or not vaccines are doing more harm than good. I realize taking this on may not lead to concrete answers, but I also know that I will be more informed. An informed decision is one I can sleep with. After all, it is my job to know.
I hope, at the end of my research that parents have a place to go to find information. My goal will ultimately be to help families decide to vaccinate or decline confidently. I definitely hope to have compiled enough information that will assure me that I have made the healthiest and safest decision for my daughter in regard to her receiving vaccines or stopping for good.
