Tennessee stops outreach programs to children for all vaccines: the danger that poses

“As a physician and parent to three girls, it’s difficult to comprehend why we would not want to share with the public the benefits of getting a vaccine that protects against deadly viruses and bacteria,” said Dr. José Mayorga, the executive director at the University of California, Irvine’s Family Health Centers. … “As a parent myself, I cannot fathom the idea of placing my children at risk like this and hope that parents begin to realize that in order to end this pandemic, we need as many eligible adults and children to get vaccinated,” he said.
