Welcome to NDs for Vaccines!

As a licensed naturopathic doctor practicing in California, I am confronted with vaccines questions and concerns every day. There is so much fear, confusion and misconceptions about immunizations and the ACIP schedule. What are parents and inquiring minds to do when vaccine discourse is dripping with sarcasm, hostility and fear mongering rhetoric? The science, research data and my own clinical experience have defined me as someone who believes vaccines are safe and effective. To the parents and clinicians who disagree and are worried about vaccine ingredients and safety, I hear your concerns. Let’s talk.

I am excited to get a productive conversation started about the safety and effectiveness of immunizations.

Yours in Health,

Setareh Tais, ND
