Children and the Flu Vaccination

The CDC’s position on vaccinating children is straight-forward: all children ages 6 months to adult should get a vaccination every year.

Which is just great, except for the fact that there is no evidence vaccinating children prevents hospital visits or reduces trips to physicians. As if to add insult to injury, according to the CDC, “the majority of influenza vaccines distributed in the United States currently contain thimerosal [mercury] as a preservative.”

Those looking for options that might actually reduce the risk of influenza in their children and themselves might want to contact their nearest naturopathic physician.
