Thank you for your kindness, Josh. We will miss the show but we believe that, in addition to retiring, God has different plans for us, so we move forward, excited to see what He has in store for us.
Here are articles on vaccines in our Reference Center; I encourage to read them all and find the right pediatrician for your family, if your current pediatrician is not resolving all of your concerns. Only you and your wife can decide what is best for your babies and we do not envy the choices you will need to make, but we are confident you will figure it out soon; it is my hope that these articles can help you make your decisions. For instance, the last one discusses why seasonal vaccines (such as flu and pneumonia) do not work and why you may not wish to expose your children to them.
PEDIATRICIANS WHO PRACTICE ALTERNATIVES TO VACCINES (this is an older list, so some changes have likely occurred)
May God bless you all, Vicki

My wife and I are sorry to see you retiring. You have all helped us so much in our lives and we are grateful. I am happy to hear that this site will be up for at least awhile and that we can continue emailing you. There were several email addresses you talked about. Can you tell me what they are and I will keep them in my email addresses?
I am writing today because we are thinking of having our 4 year old start Kindergarten in the fall where my wife will start back as a teacher (5th grade). We would leave our 7 month old with my mother-in-law who lives within a mile of us. We got all the vaccines for our older daughter over a longer than normal time and only in single vials, like you have talked about. The problem is that they want our daughter to have other vaccines we don’t think she needs, like the flu shot and pneumonia shot. If we need to, my wife will be perfectly happy staying at home and home schooling our kids so they don’t need the vaccines, but what about when they are older and want to get involved with school events, sports, etc.? Connecticut is very strict about vaccines. They are a nanny state. We have even thought about moving to a different state where they don’t force vaccines on your kids. What do you think?
I hope you’ll be golfing and enjoying your retirement for many long and happy years.
Josh and Meghan in CT
