"A trend toward giving children fewer shots at one time, combined with continued skepticism about vaccines' safety, means more kindergarteners than ever in San Diego County were not fully immunized when they started school last year.
"Much has been made of the "personal belief exemptions" parents use to allow their unvaccinated children to attend school. But a movement to delay or spread out vaccines for children is also lowering the county's immunization rates for kindergarteners.
"Nearly 90 percent of the county's schools had kindergarten classes with at least one student who was not up to date on vaccines at the start of the 2012 school year, the most recent year data was available from the California Department of Public Health...."
This was refreshing. It's actually balanced. I posted a plethora of my comments.
"A new mobile app could allow parents and doctors to stay up-to-date on reliable information about the safety and science of vaccines, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia announced on Friday.
"The hospital's Vaccine Education Center launched Vaccines on the Go: What You Should Know, an app meant to assist parents and doctors with vaccine decisions. The app provides parents with extensive resources from the VEC website that they can access anywhere to find immediate answers to questions related to childhood immunizations.
"The app, which is available for the iPhone, includes comprehensive information about vaccines and the diseases they prevent, vaccine safety topics like autism, vaccine schedules, thimerosal and too many vaccines at once, recommended immunization schedules for teens, children and adults and the types of vaccines and how they're made."
I'm sure this is first and foremost for DOCTORS. I've talked with enough of them who know nothing about vaccines. It's kind of a cheat sheet when parents ask about things. "Excuse me a minute....I have to check something."
Good luck with this. It's is a reaction to all of our voices that never stop. So will CHOP be coming up with an autism app anytime soon? They could provide links to Paul Offit slamming the autism community, Coleen Boyle testifying about the study the CDC refuses to do, and all the worthless research linking autism to mom's bad behavior--drinking, eating, smoking, not getting folic acid, having bad genes, living too close to freeways and marrying old men.
