An issue that doesn’t seem to get enough attention but actually is very important seems to be if your child should get vaccinated. Parents are starting to get more hesitant of the idea. Some fears being that the vaccine carries harmful ingredients and can give terrible side-effects. The view of this varies from person to person.
After speaking to a pediatric nurse she stated “Mothers often times cancel there newborn babies appointments for shots due to fear of how young they are”. She went on to say that she always has to reassure parents that the child will be fine but some parents still choose to opt out.
Parents who feel that vaccines are what keep everyone safe seem to be harsh to those who don’t want to do it. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) feel strongly that everyone needs to be vaccinated because there are still very dangerous diseases out there and you need to stay protected.
