Letter to the Editor


NJCVC Member Response to NYT Editorial

I was very disappointed to read the 10-22 editorial "Flu Vaccine for Preschoolers." The editorial repeats the old CDC and AAP company line that all vaccines are good and more vaccines are better. This view ignores the fact that some children suffer injury from vaccines and does not acknowledge that parents should have the right to make medical decisions for their children. More and more parents are questioning the current aggressive "one size fits all" vaccination schedule which pays no attention to the unique makeup and vulnerabilities of individual children. I am one of these parents and I was proud to be at the rally in Trenton. Parents, medical professionals, legislators, journalists and lawyers courageously came forward to speak about the injustice of parents not having choices in vaccination matters. With too many unanswered questions about vaccine safety, this is the right time for conscientious exemption in New Jersey.
