Today, I did something that I’ve been really, really afraid of. I spoke to a reporter about childhood vaccinations.
For the past year and a half, I’ve been an open advocate for the importance of adult booster vaccines. I’ve been actively involved in the Sounds of Pertussis Campaign where, in conjunction with the March of Dimes, we’ve promoted the importance of the Tdap booster to create a sort of “cacoon of protection” around infants who are too young to have yet received their Pertussis vaccination.
But childhood vaccinations? This, my friends, is a whole new ballgame.
I’m afraid I’m heading blindly into a war zone. . . like a lamb to the slaughter, you might say. Only time will tell.
Dear world, Go easy on me, K? I didn’t ask for any of this.
