The main reason for all those “well-baby” checkups during the first year or year and a half of your child’s life can be summed up in one word: vaccines. I think your typical parent is intelligent enough to notice if her baby isn’t eating enough or gaining weight or is sick (pulling at ears, throwing up, coughing, feverish). In other words, she knows when her baby needs to go to the doctor. Sure, a nurse or pediatrician will weigh and measure your child at a well-baby checkup, give him a once-over, and ask you a few questions. But you can bet those syringes are ready when you walk in the door.
If you vaccinate according to the recommended schedule, your child will receive 49 doses of vaccines by the time he is 6 years old. 49 doses. You can choose not to vaccinate—there are exemptions for children of school age. If your doctor discharges you from the practice for not vaccinating, there are doctors who will see your child. See my previous article, “You Can Say No to Vaccines … But Your Child May End Up with No Pediatrician.
Ask your "doctor" this:
* Does my child appear to be well? (no signs of an ear infection brewing, for example)
* How common is the disease (diphtheria, mumps, hepatitis B, etc.)?
* What are the risks of the disease?
* Are there studies proving that this vaccine is safe and effective? (You’ve probably lost him by now, but tell him you prefer studies that aren’t funded by a vaccine manufacturer.)
* Are there studies that show it’s safe to give more than one vaccine at the same time?
* What are the side effects of the vaccine? (He may say redness at the injection site, fever, and fussiness.) Ask what symptoms necessitate calling the doctor or taking your child to the ER (seizures, screaming for hours, loss of skills).
* What side effects have some of your patients experienced? Have any of them told you their children developed autism after a vaccine?
* Are there any contraindications? (Be sure your family history is documented, particularly autoimmune disease, along with any previous reactions your child has had to any vaccine or vaccine ingredient. Some vaccines include egg protein, so if your child is allergic to eggs, it’s critical that the doctor know this.)
* Will you break the shots up?
* Will you start them later?
* Will you spread them out?
* Will you check my child’s titers? (There’s a good chance that he’s still immune to a disease he’s already been vaccinated against.)
* Do you vaccinate your own children? If the answer is yes, ask him if he does it according to the CDC schedule. If the answer is no, ask him to share the schedule that he uses with you.
Doctors: “Do No Harm,” and Answer These Questions
For any doctors who happen to be reading this, remember that you took an oath to “do no harm.” With that in mind, here are a few questions for you
* Do you know what’s in the shots you’re giving your patients? (Out of curiosity, did you learn about vaccine ingredients in medical school, and/or have you read the package inserts?)
* Would you take all the shots as recommended on the schedule for children?
* Are you vaccinated according to the CDC’s recommended schedule for adults?
* Do you open your ears and mind and listen to parents when they say they have concerns about the vaccines? Or do you play the guilt trip and tell them they’re putting other children at risk by not vaccinating their kids?
* Do you take them seriously when they tell you their child was normal until receiving such-and-such vaccine, and now the child has autism? Look at those 1 in 88 children with autism. Do you really believe vaccines have nothing to do with it?
* What’s the chance that all the parents of these kids are making it up or imagining it?
* What’s the chance that these kids had autism all along and the parents didn’t notice it?
* What’s the chance that YOU didn’t notice it? (If you didn’t, you might want to consider another line of work.)
* Do you throw parents out if they won’t vaccinate their children? If yes, do you supply them with a list of doctors who WILL see their children?
* Have you ever thought of opening your own practice and treating parents with the respect they deserve and accepting parents who won’t vaccinate their children or want an alternate schedule? Could be lucrative. Think about it.
