The current schedule of recommended vaccines is so crowded that doctors give babies several shots during a single office visit -- up to eight vaccines all at one time. Parents — and doctors — often forget that vaccines are drugs. How often do we, as adults, take that many drugs at the same time? Would we be more surprised if we did or did not have an adverse reaction? Dr. Mayer Eisenstein has practiced medicine, delivered babies, and provided families with preventive healthcare services for over 35 years. This honest guide to childhood shots was written especially for concerned parents. With Dr. Eisenstein's help, it is now possible to make informed vaccine decisions. In this book you will learn... * The prevalence and seriousness of each disease, including who is most at risk. * How each vaccine is made, with a complete list of ingredients. * Side effects of each vaccine, with a summary of significant studies. * Precautions parents can take to protect their children. Includes Essential Information on Every Childhood Vaccine!
