11. It's All On Faith
You can never know whether a vaccine worked, would have worked, or didn’t work. Just because your child didn’t get sick doesn’t mean the vaccine worked. Just because your child isn’t vaccinated doesn’t mean she’s going to get sick. Just because your child is vaccinated doesn’t mean she isn’t going to get sick. Just because a vaccine is labeled “flu” doesn’t mean it was for the flu strains that are circulating. Just because the media says it’s true doesn’t make it so.
Vaccination requires an extraordinary amount of public trust in government, industry, and medicine. Is there any wonder parents are concerned?
