What we’re reading
“The Only Vaccine Guide a New Parent Will Ever Need.” This may not be the only guide you’ll need, but it provides a pragmatic place to start. Author J. B. Handley Jr. opens with an injunction that can be aptly applied to any parenting decision: “Do your own research. Understand the risks and benefits of everything you are putting into your child.” Without rendering a verdict, he exhorts parents to arm themselves with information and sets out to help. First, he elucidates 10 truths about vaccinations that most people—new parents especially—don’t know. Then he systematically reviews the current CDC vaccination schedule and offers a risk-benefit analysis for each recommended shot. In the process, he provides links to articles, books, websites, organizations, and other resources so you can conduct your own research and make an informed decision for your family.
