Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Immunizations


These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

Immunizations
Question: Chiropractors do not believe in immunizations and I would like to know why they don't and why the medical profession does not tell the public about long term side effects of some shots. What are the actual facts supporting this either way? A organization called M.O.M. has put out a lot of information which sounds creditable.

Answer: There is a lot of heated debate about immunizations. One of the better articles was written in MONEY magazine December 1996: "The Lethal Danger of the Billion Dollar Vaccine Business". It is clear that immunizations are very helpful for many childhood diseases. It is clear that they have decreased many problems associated with polio, measles, etc. It is also clear that much better vaccines could be manufactured with little increase in cost.
