I came across this blog today from the College Physicians of Philadelphia group. http://www.historyofvaccines.org. I don't think I've seen it before.
I found it interesting to read through some of the articles on the history of vaccination, and the history of parental concerns and organized groups opposing vaccination as well.
Seems like a resource I'll be going back to so I wanted to post it here.
They say on the page about what the blog is for:
"As a parent, it’s important to be informed about vaccinations and how they work to protect your child. We’ve created several resources to answer your questions about vaccinations, from why we still vaccinate for rare diseases to exactly how a vaccine works with your child’s immune system to prevent disease."
So their mission statement agrees really well with the MDC line on informed consent about vaccinations. :)
Someone is going to cry "foul" because Paul Offit is on the Editorial Board for the blog and that "because he made millions from rotavirus he's bought and paid for by big pharma". That's your opinion and you're entitled to it. Mine is that he's a well respected expert in immunisation, and the expertise he's developed while working on developing vaccines makes him worth listening to. I believe I'm entitled to that opinion too. He's also only one of the many board members on there.
