Doc Smo here. Thanks for joining me for this important edition of Portable, Practical, Pediatrics. The anti-vaccine movement continues to gain strength in the U.S. so it’s time for this pediatrician to speak out, again. The following pedcast is a rebroadcast of a post I did back in 2015 to give my listeners a glimpse of how vital vaccines are to their children’s good health. In my mind, in order for children to thrive, they need food, water, clean air, the love of their family, and vaccines. Yes, vaccines are that basic to their well being, to be mentioned in the same sentence with food, water, and air. Let’s explore that concept a little in today’s archived post I call, “The Most Important Question in Pediatrics”.
