Why Should You Immunize Your Child?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that even though the occurrence of some diseases today is minimal, if the disease has not been eliminated, it is still important to be vaccinated against it.
If you don’t know which diseases we vaccinate against and why we vaccinate against them, you can see photos of the diseases and learn more about the diseases and why we try to prevent them.
Immunizations and Mercury
The mercury in vaccines is called thimerosal. All the vaccines we have given in the office for the last several years are thimerosal-free. Also, did you know that there is a baseline amount of mercury found in the general, unvaccinated population?
For more information on mercury in the environment and to read studies about the effects of mercury in our bodies, check out CDC’s page on Mercury and Vaccines.
