The vaccination debate heats up
5:40 on the video
"There are other doctors who have been doing this. They're cowards. This comes from the American Academy of Pediatrics, putting pressure on these pediatricians, This goes back several years now. I've witnessed this. Many pediatricians have been doing this where they get the pressure from the American Academy of Pediatrics. The AAP will only endorse pediatricians that fully vaccinate--fully vaccinate every kid that they have coming into their practice. . . .
When Don Imus asked Deirdre if she was against vaccinating for measles she said, "First of all, when you vaccinate for measles, you're vaccinating for measles, mumps, rubella, so your child's getting three inoculations in one shot. . . .
"It depends on the child. It depends on their immune system. It depends on if they already have other underlying conditions or other diagnoses. . . . It's not a one-size-fits-all for every child. . . .
"And the media is at fault here too because they're not giving good information. . . .
"There's an entire Vaccine Court that has proven that there's vaccine injuries, and we can't ignore that. And nobody is talking about that. . . .
"And all these big media corporations are under pressure to not talk bad about vaccines because of the pharmaceutical companies. . . .
"Sharyl Attkisson was one of the journalists who was telling the truth about this . . . "
Deirdre Imus talking about pediatricians who won't see patients if they're not vaccinated. She called them "cowards." She talked children with compromised immune systems. She noted there's a Vaccine Court. She brought up the work of SHaryl Attkisson and the power and influence of the drug industry.
