Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) June 14, 2006 -–
In today’s pediatric office the most frequently asked questions are “Which vaccinations are best for my child and when and how is the safest way to schedule them?” In his two-hour DVD seminar program Dr. Jay Gordon provides a comprehensive and insightful overview of the current research and protocols that have impacted our national immunological philosophy.
In the program, Dr. Gordon discusses the personal and public health issues surrounding vaccinations - their risks, benefits and how to assess an appropriate course for each particular family. “Vaccinations?” DVD empowers parents to make the most informed healthcare decisions for their child.
There is currently a serious debate between concerned parents and their doctors regarding the safety of vaccines. Engaged on the front lines, Dr. Gordon says, “I‘ve seen scores of healthy, breastfeeding, intelligent families ‘kicked out’ of a pediatric practice merely because they wanted to discuss the timing of their child’s vaccine schedule or ask questions about vaccine safety. Doctors taking this narrow position are not serving the best interests of children or families.”
Having counseled thousands of parents on this controversial subject, Dr. Gordon speaks directly to their concerns, thoughtfully guiding them through a critical decision-making process. “My strong belief is that we must now give vaccination programs a hard statistical and historical evaluation and see which vaccines are still relevant to 21st Century American children. We must also look even closer at new vaccines to evaluate safety and efficacy just as we evaluate all other pharmaceutical products.” Recognizing the polarizing effects of the debate, he adds, “If we do not join the discussion as informed open-minded participants, we leave the debate to extremists on both sides of the issue.”
