Immunization in infants and children has become a hot topic of conversation. Some believe the shots can cause developmental disorders such as autism in children. They find security in believing that the immunizations are not necessary because the diseases they address have been all but eradicated in this country.
It’s not that these diseases no longer exist, but we have created communal immunity due to the immunization schedule. Therefore, as more and more people choose not to give their children shots the diseases can return to our communities. Research continues to provide data that there is no link between immunizations and autism spectrum disorders. All medical foundations continue to recommend that these shots be given to all children.
