7 Vaccines Moms Wish Existed

To vaccinate or not vaccinate? That is the question. For me it's not really a question. I'm all in favor of preventing preventable diseases. I'm also in favor of looking both ways before I cross the street and other logical precautionary things that are within my control. But others take a different stance for their own reasons. I totally get that. I often bite into a steaming hot slice of pizza, even though I know there are things I could do to prevent the roof of my mouth from falling off.

The debate is ongoing and relentless. Sure, measles, mumps and rubella come with rashes, fever, muscle pain, which could all lead to brain swelling or death … but there are bigger problems facing us on a daily basis! Let's agree to disagree on how to treat preventable diseases and focus on these 7 vaccines that we can all get on board with.
