NBC News admits most doctors are spacing out vaccine schedules to reduce risk

by Jennifer Lilley

(NaturalNews) NBC News, home of the Brian Williams forced-down helicopter war-story-turned-lie and the news outlet that often encourages vaccinations through its reporting, is dipping its toe (thankfully) in an area that most mainstream media outlets don't dare approach.

What did they do?

The news outlet recently reported on a published study in which an increasing amount of parents were requesting that their children's vaccinations be spaced out. These requests clearly demonstrate the growing awareness among the general public of vaccinations' horrific consequences. Even more eye-opening, the mainstream news outlet reported that pediatricians who fear losing patients are actually going along with such parental requests.

Interestingly, the same NBC writer who recently covered this topic, Maggie Fox, is also the same one who just weeks prior, wrote an article headlined, "7 Vaccine Myths Debunked by Doctors." The senior health writer's opening sentence in that particular story is in direct opposition with the latest reported study it covered about spacing out vaccinations, saying, "Delaying vaccines is not only a waste of time, it could be dangerous to your kids."

Still, the fact the NBC News covered something anti-vaccination -- a topic typically approached by alternative media outlets -- provides hope. While a small step, it shows that perhaps they too will eventually be on board with getting to the true core of all matters rather than whatever news-speak best satisfies their advertisers and that of bobble-head, cookie-cutter opinion leaders.

Surveys reveal why doctors are willing to space out vaccination schedules

The study in which parents are asking for more time between their children's vaccinations was published in the journal, Pediatrics. An abstract discussing the article, "Physician Response to Parental Requests to Spread Out the Recommended Vaccine Schedule," states that its primary objectives were threefold. As stated in the journal, those objectives were:

To assess among US physicians (1) frequency of requests to spread out recommended vaccination schedule for children, (2) attitudes regarding such requests, and (3) strategies used and perceived effectiveness in response to such requests.

But is health really the motivating factor for doctors who agree to space out vaccinations?

While it's good that doctors -- at least as outlined in this study -- seem to be honoring the parent's requests, it's a sad commentary on their belief system in that their motivating factor is not health, but rather, keeping patients coming to their practice. Still, if we are to look at the glass half full, it's a hopeful step in the right direction especially since many pro-vaccine doctors have been known to push shots on children.

For example, pro-vaccine doctor Paul Offit makes it his mission to actually teach other medical professionals how to interact with parents who resist giving their children vaccinations. It's not uncommon for him to lecture on this topic, often calling on doctors in the audience to engage in a role-playing scenario in which he teaches them how to respond to the variety of questions that concerned parents may pose to the doctor. In other words, Offit is teaching those in the medical profession how to resist potential vaccination push-back from parents by offering them a slew of canned, anticipatory responses.

As many people are aware (Jimmy Kimmel not included of course), vaccinations come with a slew of health consequences.

Reports of health changes for the worse, such as being relegated to a wheelchair or being unable to eat on one's own, have been linked to getting vaccinations. Death too, has been associated with the receipt of vaccinations; the timing from when the shot was given and the onset of death in an otherwise healthy person is hardly something that can be deemed a mere coincidence.
