I so agree with Monday’s letter writer about vaccinations. (“‘Moderate’ reaction not worth the risk.”) When does it ever end? My son (now 37 years old) also had a minor reaction to a DPT shot, as a small child. B
ack then, you were expected to have about 11 pre-kindergarten shots, to enter school. It is my understanding now that it may be as many as twice that amount today, by the time a child enters school.
