California pediatrician vaccination stance

Pediatrician Mike Ginsberg

Quote
In my practice you will vaccinate and you will vaccinate on time. You will not get your own “spaced-out” schedule that increases your child’s risk of illness or adverse event. I will not have measles-shedding children sitting in my waiting room. I will answer all your questions about vaccine and present you with facts, but if you will not vaccinate then you will leave my practice. I will file a CPS report (not that they will do anything) for medical neglect, too.

I have patients who are premature infants with weak lungs and hearts. I have kids with complex congenital heart disease. I have kids who are on chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia who cannot get all of their vaccines. In short, I have patients who have true special needs and true health issues who could suffer severe injury or death because of your magical belief that your kid is somehow more special than other children and that what’s good for other children is not good for yours. This pediatrician is not putting up with it.

Never have, never will.

There is a doctor who cares.  Hope he sticks to it.  Measles outbreak in Omaha, NE after none for 20 years.  These people need to be brought up on neglect.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

This is extremely good news. It is about time that the anti-vaxers got told properly.

I still wonder, though, how ex doctor Wakefield was allow to go to the USA and then promote his vaccines and nonsense  about the MMR vaccine given that the UK authorities had removed his entitlement to practice medicine in the UK on the basis of his fake 'research'. From what I have heard, given that he apparently owns the only business that produces the single dose vaccines, it was money-making project and not anything to do with serious medical research.

I'd be happy to take kids to this doctor.

Fuck yeah.  I'm sending this guy $10 just because.

What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.
