Sturgeon Bay doctor says vaccines are safe

A locally retired pediatrician is speaking out against the national vaccine scare of reported claims that the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine causes autism.  Dr. John Swanson of Sturgeon Bay says that unfortunately over the last decade more and more parents are not getting their children vaccinated.  He says there is absolutely no proven link between the MMR vaccine and autism.  Parents should not have any concerns of having something unnatural put into their children’s bodies when it comes to vaccines, according to Dr. Swanson. 

 

 

Dr. Swanson encourages parents to talk with their doctor about vaccinations and go to scientific-based websites for accurate information, like the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
