Too Many Too Soon

Too Many Too Soon is an easy vaccine myth to fall for.

Dr. Jay Gordon, Hollywood’s pediatrician, often pushes this anti-vaccine myth, saying:

“…the idea of vaccinating everybody in America, every child in America, at six weeks of age with six or seven different vaccines, ’cause you know we’re adding one, that’s not the best medicine. We don’t give six of anything else. We don’t give six antibiotics.”

Of course, he is wrong. Protecting infants against eight vaccine-preventable diseases is a great idea and has been proven safe over and over again.

  1. Regarding myth #30 (America gives more than other countries), as you state – many other countries (including Australia) are comparable. The Australian schedule (*1) recommends 30 in the first year, and 42 by the age of 4.

    Australia takes the issue of non vaccination so seriously that un-vaccinated children will be banned from childcare facilities (*2). This is already in force in NSW, Victoria and Queensland representing 77% of the population.
