Several parents attended the meeting and were appalled at the apathy and rubber stamp approach to recommending more and more vaccines even when logic fails. There was a photo of one member taking a bit of a snooze during the proceedings. Nice. You may have read on Facebook that Dr. Paul Offit was in attendance and accepted a lunch invitation from a group of parents. We remain skeptical, Sometimes we become caricatures to those who don’t really know us. Sometimes a meeting can effect change. That said, Dr. Offit has been viciously cruel to all of us. I don’t care to give him any more ink. Put it this way, if he offers you a ride across the stream on his back, say “No, thanks.”
The next ACIP meeting is in February. See more here.
