I just wanted to congratulate you on your story pertaining to vaccines (“Vaccinate your kid!,” February 13). As someone old enough to remember the horrible consequences of vaccine-preventable diseases, it is unfathomable to me that anyone would allow their children to be unprotected – not to mention putting other people’s children at risk.
We feel so strongly about this that as a practice we will not allow our patients who are too young or too sick to be immunized to be exposed to unvaccinated children.
It takes a lot of education and effort to undo the misinformation circulating about vaccines. I applaud your efforts to dispel some of those myths so we can make all our children safer and healthier
