Why Vaccinate? It’s Important from Dr. Pam Fisher

“My Grandmother was blind in 1 eye, and almost completely deaf from a very young age.

These things were caused by one of the “normal” childhood illnesses in the early 1900”s. I suspect it was mumps or measles.

Even though she recovered from the illness, she struggled with her disabilities for her entire life.

She always laughed when she couldn’t understand what I was saying by lip reading, and often came up with silly words. But after that illness she never heard simple sounds like birds singing, and she never heard the sound of my voice.

I often wonder what her life would have been like if she could have gotten the vaccines that we have today.”~Dr. Pam Fisher, pediatrician
