Hello world!

I wanted to dedicate my first post to something that is very important to me. I am aware that there is a lot of information on the internet regarding the risk and possible harm of vaccination, I understand that we want to protect ourselves and our children from any harm and that is why I wanted to share an amazing article that I recently came across.  It is written by Dr. Jennifer Raff and addresses the many misconceptions that parents have on the topic of vaccination and it provides links to very reliable scientific articles that support her statements. Vaccines have revolutionized health care as we know it and still continue to do so every single day. Someone’s false believe has sparked a passionate debate but for me and others in the medical community the answer is simple. Vaccinate!
