Vaccinations need better shots
Re “Vaccination bill clears first legislative hurdle,” April 9
If we are trying to convince parents and the populace of the wisdom and safety of having their children vaccinated, why on Earth do you consistently publish these pictures of crying children at the moment of vaccination?
The discomfort lasts only seconds, and it is mostly from being held down among strangers; your dramatic scary pictures last forever and can be frightening to anxious, ambivalent parents.
As a former pediatric nurse, I have seen the longterm devastation of non-vaccinated children and the short-term discomfort during vaccination. There is no comparison.
