The past year has been full of uncertainties and we continue to face decisions around vaccines, a changing social landscape, and how to protect our families and maintain our quality of life. The best we can do is stay informed on the constantly evolving research and take into account our family’s unique needs. Parents of young children have the added responsibility of making decisions for them, with limited data. No one can tell you what the right choice is when it comes to getting your child vaccinated. Dhru and Dr. Song have a grounded conversation about what we know and what we still need to find out.
