Last fall I pointed blog readers to my colleague Rachel Stone’s post on vaccination as an expression of neighborly love. Today, Rachel has a follow-up post of sorts, commenting on a Mother Jones article indicating that poverty and other family issues (such as working parents who struggle to get their kids to the doctor’s office during business hours) are significant factors in children going unvaccinated. I commend you to her post, as well as to an excellent new web site, Voices for Vaccines, that provides reliable, science-based information on vaccines. The Voices for Vaccines project is led by two parents and supported by a medical advisory council. I’ve had the privilege of talking with the two moms behind this project, Karen Ernst and Ashley Shelby, and have been looking for a chance to share their work. This seems like as good a time as any.
