    The US gives more vaccines than most any other industrialized nation I believe.

    Wonder why that is?

    I doubt it's because they haven't caught up with us yet given the US poor standing on the health scale (high infant mortality, low life expectancy, etc).

    Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature. If I had Bill Gates money, I'd buy Detroit.

      Pharmaceutical companies are well entrenched in the medical community's recommendations, including vaccination schedule development. Again, not against vaccines by any means, just making it reasonable, logical and based on risk assessment a the individual level. A bit of a pipe dream in terms of cost, etc, but that's how it goes.

      All I want is the truth.
