Hepatitis B and Boys

Here is an article by David Kirby about Hepatitis B vaccinations, infant boys, and autism.  As he points out, there are many injections given and only one (the Measles-Mumps-Rubella or MMR) has mainstream attention.  When evaluating any type of research, I think it’s important to look at who did the study and why as well as who paid for the study.  The decision whether to vaccinate, delay, selective vaccinate, or not vaccinate at all is a hot button issue with many parents.  As with any decision, there are benefits and risks to each.  Each parent will evaluate the risk/benefit ration for their own family history, current health condition, religious beliefs, or other criteria.

Keep in mind that if you have a hospital birth, your newborn will be vaccinated almost immediately unless you say otherwise.
