This Doctor Has Some Strong Words For Parents Thinking About Vaccinating Their Children

Child vaccinations are one of the most disputed topics in America. Despite a tremendous amount of scientific evidence to the contrary, many parents are still deciding to leave their newborn children unvaccinated, believing that vaccination can cause autism. The doctor who originally published these incorrect findings, Andrew Wakefield, had his medical license removed after an investigation revealed he had lied about his data and findings.

An outraged pediatrician, Doctor Mike Ginsberg, took to Facebook to deliver an uncompromising message to ‘anti-vaxxer’ parents, condemning their selfish and dangerous attitude. After the initial period of exposure dwindled, Doctor Ginsberg’s post has been going viral all over again.

In the stern Facebook post, Doctor Ginsberg informs parents that all children visiting his practice will be vaccinated or refused service, angrily writing: “In my practice, you will vaccinate and you will vaccinate on time. You will not get your own ‘spaced-out’ schedule that increases your child’s risk of illness or adverse event. I will not have measles-shedding children sitting in my waiting room. I will answer all your questions about vaccine and present you with facts, but if you will not vaccinate then you will leave my practice. I will file a CPS report (not that they will do anything) for medical neglect, too.”

The opinionated pediatrician has been rightfully praised for his transparency and firm position on the issue of vaccination. Many parents are happy to bring their children to Doctor Ginsberg’s practice with the knowledge that the other patients are up to date on their vaccinations. Despite credible sources debunking the following health myths, many parents are still convinced that vaccines can cause autism, overload the child’s immune system or lead to painful infections.

In his lengthy Facebook post, Doctor Ginsberg attempted to explain his hard line against ‘anti-vaxxer’ parents, saying: “I have patients who are premature infants with weak lungs and hearts. I have kids with complex congenital heart disease. I have kids who are on chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia who cannot get all of their vaccines…I have patients who have true special needs and true health issues who could suffer severe injury or death because of your magical belief that your kid is somehow more special than other children and that what’s good for other children is not good for yours.”
