The column tries to de-mystify the annual freak-out frenzy surrounding the aggressive annual campaign from Big Pharma, Big Media, Big Medicine and various medical industry lobbying organizations (such as the AMA (American Medical Association), the AAFP (American Academy of Family Practice), the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) and ACOG (the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) to urge everybody to mindlessly “just get your damn shots” without being given a chance to think about it and perhaps ask about the potential downsides of getting the inoculation (look up “informed consent”). There is a lot more to that simplistic annual advertising campaign than meets the eye. The following article (and the first chart) should be a good introduction to the topic (especially if you are pregnant and are being urged to simultaneously get an aluminum-laced DTaP shot).
