A pediatrician’s plea which was posted on Facebook in 2015, is going viral – again!

Missing vaccinations is not a good idea, however, some parents are still skeptical and become convinced that a “delayed” vaccination schedule is better for their kids. There is no science behind this theory and it and has never ever been proven to be true.

Children do not receive any known benefits from following schedules that delay vaccines,” says the CDC. “Delaying vaccines puts children at known risk of becoming ill with diseases that could have been prevented.”

Dr. Mike Ginsberg responded strongly to the Measles outbreak of 2015. He took to Facebook and posted this message for his patients which went viral then, and it’s going viral again, after someone shared it on Imgur.

It said:

In my practice you will vaccinate and you will vaccinate on time,” his post starts off. “You will not get your own ‘spaced out’ schedule that increases your child’s risk of illness or adverse event. I will not have measles-shedding children sitting in my waiting room.”

“I have patients who are premature infants with weak lungs and hearts,” he writes. “I have kids with complex congenital heart disease… In short, I have patients who have true special needs and true health issues who could suffer severe injury or death because of your magical belief that your kid is somehow more special than other children and that what’s good for other children is not good for yours.”

His final words were “This pediatrician is not putting up with it. Never have, never will.”
