Vaccines: What's Going On?

Presentation Synopsis
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends - and State health departments mandate - children be vaccinated for fourteen different diseases before fifteen months of age, most of which are administered in multiple doses which results in as many as twenty six doses of single and combined vaccines administered in the first fifteen months of age.   This number is ever increasing as new vaccines are added to the childhood immunization schedule.  

Increasingly, research is suggesting that the current CDC schedule has safety risks associated with it and parents along with healthcare advocates are questioning the rationale of the current CDC and State mandated vaccines schedules offered in most traditional medical setting and are seeking alternative resources and education endeavoring to make more informed vaccine decisions for their children.  Frequently, these parents will consult the naturopathic physician for education and answers involving alternative vaccine schedules as well as alternatives to vaccinating their children.  

This one hundred and twenty minute talk will review of the current childhood and adult vaccine schedules along with a history of the schedules and how the schedule is determined.  It will then give a brief review of vaccine safety studies and the risks and side effects associated with vaccines.  It will conclude with a discussion about alternative and individualized vaccine schedules for patients.

In 2000, I graduated from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM) with academic honors.  My profound interest in optimizing childhood health and nutrition led me to examine the topic of immunizations in-depth and it became a passion of mine.  I recognized the importance of vaccines in certain populations but struggled with many of the immunization practices currently in place including the ingredients and manufacturing processes of vaccines, the "one size fits all” approach and the lack of pediatric developmental consideration in the timing of vaccines.  It soon became clear to me that there was a better way to administer vaccines and so I combined the scientific data regarding vaccines, the science of the body and my strong foundational knowledge of health from my naturopathic education to create a more optimal approach to infectious disease.  Since 2006 I have lectured extensively on the topic of immunizations and have created several CE courses on the subject.
