Every time I see an ad that states, “No shots. No school,” or “No shots. No school. No kidding,” I become incredibly confused. The fact is that this is not true, and never has been. Why would this dishonest information be so visible to parents?
I am not writing this letter to recommend whether parents vaccinate their children or not, with all the mandated and suggested vaccines available. I do, however, want to let people know that they have a choice, because many parents still are not aware there is one.
Georgia and South Carolina have medical and religious exemptions from vaccinating children. Parents should educate themselves regarding the pros and cons of the present vaccine schedule, then decide what they believe is best for the best health of their children.
