Daughter and I had long discussions with our pediatrician AND our gynecologist before my daughter got the vaccine.
These are both brilliant, extremely well educated, top-flight doctors. My family's been here since 1918, we have spent a good deal of time figuring out who the best, most patient-oriented, up to date physicians are.
They were frank about the risks on both sides, getting and not getting the vaccine. Ultimately both said "it's your choice," although both did say they thought the benefits outweighed the risks. We decided in favor of the vaccine.
No ill effects for my daughter.
Aside from the professional angle, I must say that the anti-vaccine crowd has cried "Wolf!" so often that I approach any anti-vaccine information with great skepticism. Those of us who had friends crippled with polio or friends' baby sisters and brothers deaf or retarded from German measles are cautious about this stuff.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
well your daughter was very fortunate - my wife had sizures from Gardisil, as a treatment for other “female” problems. These episodes are exactly like those described by teens that got the drug. Lots of drugs do good things - but that does not mean the government should “require” that they be given, just because someone had a family member get a disease..Perry’s explination for his order.
Except, forcing a vaccine on someone is tyranny.
