National Immunization Awareness Month
The Healing Project wishes to call attention to National Immunization Awareness Month. Vaccinations are not only important to individuals but also the community at-large. Herd immunity protects us all.
If you are unable or someone you know is unable to afford vaccinations, free and reduced cost vaccinations are available throughout the United States.
The Healing Project acknowledges that many people are concerned about the possible adverse-effects of immunization, particularly in children. While ingesting any substance has its risks, the benefits of vaccinations greatly out way the risks. Finally, we are also aware that members of are community are concerned that vaccinations may result in Autism. Careful scientific studies not only in the United States but also throughout the world have not demonstrated any causal relationship between vaccination and Autism. Please see a qualified health provider and see your children are vaccinated before they return to school.
