The Benefits of Vaccines & Immunizations

I have grown up in an age where most most of my peers were, and continue to be, incredibly skeptical of the government. They feel as though the men in power lie to their citizens time and time again in order to pursue their own agenda. Conspiracy theories abound in the minds of millennials, and they’re only going to grow.

Now I’m not one to jump the gun and say that they are all a bunch of loonies, but hey, life’s short – time is limited – and I cannot spend my entire life determining whether these conspiracies are true. Some are outright ridiculous, and can be thrown out right away. Others, not so much.

There is one new conspiracy, however, that is gaining all the buzz these days – and it happens to be about, of all things: vaccines.

Yes, apparently the government has decided to buy out your doctor!

Now we’re being facetious here; but unfortunately, humor and sarcasm cannot be used to refute an argument. It’ll take a bit more than an appeal to humor to dispel all these theories about how vaccines cause autism (just one of a slew of supposed vaccine reactions).

So what is it about vaccines that the conspiracy theorists are pointing to? Apparently, there is this theory that eugenicists are trying to sterilize the population as a way to reduce the number of people in the future. So where is their evidence?

That’s the thing. It’s shoddy. It’s not waterproof. People have mistakenly confused correlation with causation – assuming that just because there are links between two different phenomena, that one caused the other.

Apparently there was a Wakefield study that came out – fraudulently linking vaccines to the development of autism. This one study spread like wildfire and had half of the world raising an eyebrow about the need of vaccines. Of course, I’m no expert myself, but merely looking at history will invalidate the conspiracies that people are being injected with dangerous chemicals; a history that displays the successful prevention of smallpox, deadly flus and many other horrible illnesses with the help of vaccines.

For those who are still interested in getting vaccines, who see the value that they bring to the world, Doctors Clinic Houston is proud to offer immunization services to fellow Houstonians. Our commitment to offering the very best to our patients has helped us develop quite the following on the web – even ranking for high-end keywords like immunizations Houston and vaccination Houston. The market has spoken, and our doctors are confident that the services offered here at Doctors Clinic Houston are among the best in the county.

So come in when you can and make sure to get yourself and your family immunized. Often it’s worth it to defer gratification and take precautionary measures. In the immediate now, it may seem like an inconvenience, but believe us when we say it – you’ll totally regret not being proactive if you end up with some ungodly illness that’ll leave you bedridden for weeks. Vaccines are an insurance policy – and a relatively small price to pay, given how pernicious the recent illnesses of our age have been. And with the doctors we have at our disposal, the price you pay will be even smaller – both from a money and time standpoint.

Ebola: A Briefing

There are two main reasons why the Ebola outbreak in West Africa has become so overwhelmingly rife. The first has to do with the travel patterns of bats across the African continent; the second, recent weather patterns in the region. Informing oneself with the origins of the Ebola virus, where it started, to where it spread to, and so on, is important and definitely time well spent. The said knowledge can in turn provide the necessary information to develop an antidote. However, because we are still in the early stages of fact gathering, any expectation to come up with a cure right away would be impetuous and not in accordance with reason. For now, we can only share with the world the little information we have gathered, and that information mainly has to do with the history of the virus. Our doctors at Doctors Clinic Houston are putting in extra hours to find out what can be done to obviate any potential Ebola outbreaks.

The Ebola outbreak started out in Guinea, and, shortly after its emergence, spread to the neighboring countries of Liberia and Sierra Leone. Sadly, an incredibly dangerous virus has emerged in the region of the world that is arguably the least prepared for it.

The Ebola virus has five species, and each has resulted in outbreaks in different regions. Experts were absolutely shocked to discover that the most noxious Ebola virus of all wasn’t the one that originated in Guinea, but the one that originated in Zaire. This Zaire Ebola virus is the culprit that is even striking fear into the eyes of those in the western world. It has killed up to 90 percent of those infected with it. And it is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down.

For now, all we can do is continue our research – assiduously and with a commitment to reason and evidence.
