Kuwait: Vaccines and Babies

, from Kuwait, shares her concerns about administering vaccines for babies. “a lot of ppl are shunning them for now and only giving them two years after birth .. to prevent some of what is believed to be harmful side affects (one of them is Autism!) and to give the baby's body a chance to build a stronger immune system,” she notes.

  • Although I am sorry autism has hit global proportions, I am glad to see other countries are seeing the link between vaccines and the disorder.
    I live in the US and would love to hear what parents in other countries are saying. We need a Universal Voice.
