Award Winning Medical Journalist, Dr. Corey Hebert, Publishes Controversial Manuscript, Condemning The Anti-Vaccine Movement, In the May 2012 Issue Of The Journal of Human Vaccines and Immunotherapeutics
Award winning, on-air medical journalist and physician, Dr. Corey Hebert, Asst. Professor, Tulane University, has authored a compelling, thought provoking manuscript which appears in the May issue of the Journal of Human Vaccines and Immunotherapeutics.
In this journal publication entitled, “Lessons learned and applied: What the 20th century vaccine experience can teach us about vaccines in the 21st century”, Dr. Hebert challenges the anti- establishment crusade that is prompting so many young parents to forego routine immunization.
Dr. Hebert has surveyed new parents across the country regarding their knowledge of vaccine preventable illnesses such as Polio and Haemophilus Influenzae type B meningitis. These parents have invariably never cared for a child who has suffered from these diseases and furthermore they never even knew anyone who had any of these diseases. Vaccines have afforded us all this luxury!
This concept flies directly in the face of the controversial “attachment parenting” movement. These parents are putting their children as well as the citizens of the United States at risk for the re-emergence of these deadly diseases because of pop culture icons and unscrupulous doctors pandering to their anti-vaccine constituency.
This manuscript is loaded with data and references to validate the notion that vaccine creation and routine administration are the primary reasons that our society is virtually free from the scourge of epidemic illness in America.
