Childhood Immunizations: Get the Facts August 8, 2011
Social media has an increasing presence in our lives. I remember thinking, “this Twitter rage will never stick.” But now it’s everywhere. Still, I have yet to succumb to the madness, but then again I said that about a few of the social networking sites. I learn of many things that you would consider breaking news through social networking sites. I will admit that I had strong opinions about people displaying their lives over the internet but now I also see some of the benefits. Reading people’s arguments has raised a new level of tolerance and understanding within me, for opinions I may not have previously agreed with. One of those controversial topics is whether or not we should get our children immunized.
It may be a controversial topic, but as Dr. Holiday says, it’s important to make an informed decision. Consider the sources that you read from and try to gather as much information as you can from as many credible sources as you can.
