Some doctors like to refer to themselves as being “vaccine-friendly.”
Of course, that doesn’t mean that they particularly like vaccines.
Rather, it means that they are very willing and happy to follow a non-standard, parent-selected, delayed protection vaccine schedule.
Instead of being vaccine friendly, a better way of thinking about these doctors is that they are disease friendly.
Disease friendly doctors, in delaying or skipping one or more of their patient’s vaccines, put those kids at risk for vaccine-preventable diseases.
