This course is designed for parents with questions about childhood immunizations. This lecture is presented in a research-based, unbiased format so that parents, educators and physicians may make their own conclusions based solely on fact and research. This class covers many popular misconceptions regarding vaccines.
This course includes all the latest research regarding vaccines, vaccine adverse events and immunology. Written and recorded by Dr. Erika Krumbeck, naturopathic physician who specializes in pediatrics and vaccine safety. Also included is an e-book workbook filled with the data included in the lecture and a blank vaccine worksheet.
This course is approximately 2 hours in 11 sections. Each subsection includes a discussion of each individual vaccine and disease the vaccine is designed to prevent. For each vaccine there is a discussion of 1) epidemiology (the actual likelihood of getting the disease) and how it is transmitted, 2) what ingredients are in the vaccine and which of these ingredients are controversial, 3) what age is appropriate to give the vaccine, 4) common adverse events, 5) considerations in delaying or declining the vaccine.
In between subsections there is also a discussion of the following topics:
It is essential to remember all of these considerations when coming up with a vaccine plan for you and your family.
Parents who are still concerned should read the supplementary material below.
I am so grateful to have found this webinar and Dr. Erika. I have been researching vaccines left and right and have not found someone whose approach to medicine is similar to mine and whose voice I feel I can trust in this vaccine debate. We take our little one to see both a pediatrician and a naturopath, and they are at opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to vaccinating: the pediatrician recommends all vaccines per the CDC schedule (combo vaccines and all) and our naturopath recommends no vaccines at all. Our family will likely fall somewhere in the middle and do a selective, delayed schedule in accordance to the variables in our particular family situation. I felt confused and overwhelmed by all the information out there - this webinar very much helped sort through all of that information and clarify the data we currently have at our disposal. While I'm still frustrated that there is not more conclusive data about all vaccines and their potential long-term effects, I at least feel as though I can wrap my head around what information is available today. Thank you, Dr. Erika! I can sleep well tonight and feel more confident at our 8 week pediatric visit.
