Five-year-old Ryan Anderson of Jacksonville Beach is an animated, happy child.

But that wasn’t always the case.

“His course of deterioration from a happy, developmentally appropriate child to the problems he began to develop, started right after he received the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine,” says Ryan’s father, Bruce Anderson.

Alternatives to Flu Vaccine

I can think of very few more insane holiday events than having parents and children wait in long lines at shopping malls, supermarkets, hospitals and clinics to get a flu vaccination, worrying that the supply might run out before they step up to get the shot. They have been convinced that the flu vaccine will save them from the terrible flu bug that has already killed six children in Colorado and six people in Oklahoma. It is a dangerous way of thinking, as you will read below.

When I first started practicing medicine over 20 years ago, the flu vaccine was only indicated for those over 60 years if age or with chronic health conditions. Now, experts are predicting that we will see even more flu vaccinations recommended than we have already seen. A Mayo Clinic professor and a member of the CDC advisory committee on immunization predicted that we will continue to see a broadening of the recommendation for influenza immunization.
