Thoughts re: Vaccines and mandatory vaccinations.
We receive calls and questions regarding the requirement for mandatory vaccinations. We will help you be aware of the research and science behind the current recommendations/use of modern day vaccinations. We will help you weigh the risks and benefits of each.
Dr Merrifield is
not 'anti-vaccines'; she is PRO-CHOICE re immunizations and believes in informed consent to have any
medicine, treatment or procedure done. This includes vaccinations and is in keeping with good medical practice. There are risks to take vaccines, just as there are in any medical treatment.
The Hippocratic oath
states to 'First do no harm'.
Informed consent means that a person takes a treatment or procedure voluntarily with knowledge of the risks and benefits.
In an integrated wholistic model of patient centered care, recommendations are tailored to the individual.
We can help you decide what is best for you and your family.
