First, what is Hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is a virus that affects the liver. It is transmitted through bodily fluids (blood, semen, vaginal fluids) and can also be injected via infected needle. So why if your newborn baby who has already passed through the birth canal given the hepatitis B vaccine so early. Starts with an M and ends with a Y. You got it MONEY. I have never met a child who was having sex as a baby, shooting up needles, working at a medical office with syringes etc. Have you? I hate to say this but because most of the public goes along with whatever media tells them it is easy for parents to just say oh okay sure give my baby that vaccine.
The CDC and doctors know that you are still pretty goo goo ga ga over your child at two months so the easiest thing to do is tell you it is mandatory for you to get this vaccine. So every two months you come into the office to get your baby's shots.
The worse thing is that more and more pediatricians are denying care to parents who decline vaccinations. These parents do not just wake up one day and decide not to vaccinate. They spend hours among hours researching the pros and cons. And as my disclaimer says I am not telling you not to vaccinate I am simply saying do your homework. In most states you do have the option to decline vaccination(s) based on religious/philosophical beliefs or medical exemptions in order for your child to attend public school/daycare/college etc. This can easily be found online. No matter what you decide for your family do not let coercion by your doctor, friends, or family make your mind up for you. Do your research.
