This letter is neither a confirmation nor an approval of the latest controversy, that being to vaccinate or not.
But I have to wonder why the medical profession thinks that all the answers are at their fingertips.
Fore example, back in the early day up until the 1920s I believe, the medical profession had come across this new medical wonder drug (element) that was radium, it was professed to be the new wonder material of the day, prescribed and used by doctors to cure just about all that could ail anyone. Many people in the following years died of cancer, radium poisoning and other maladies as a result. Then even more recently, I am sure all remember the thalidomide farce, where pregnant women were prescribed it for the issues of morning sickness, that was also a major faux pas.
I am not saying his particular vaccine (MMR) is bad, wrong or whatever, but at this point who really knows. I am sure the profession does not in any way want the possible effects to be bad, hurtful, whatever.
There is so many things in the past - in the 1950s Health Canada stated food should be fried in grease, butter, whatever, but changed course a little later.
The housing industry had it on good information, in the '60's and '70's that fermicular was the insulation of the century to insulate your houses, only to find several years later, it was not so good, and created a lot of grief all over Canada.
Tobacco was another that could do no harm but just look today.
I think if as it stands now, where the government at school registration time denies your child to register if you cannot prove vaccination, what do you do? Under B.C. law, your child must attend school.
Unfortunately I do not have the answers but one just has to look at the past bungling, quick actions of government, to see it might not be the answers.
Good luck with very hard decisions.
