Vaccination Discussion, Session 3:  NYS Exemptions 
November 17, 2012
     Join Dr. Bialek-Lehrer of Inner Balance Chiropractic  for an informative talk and discussion regarding 
investigating before you vaccinate. 

     Facilitators: Dr. Bialek-Lehrer 
     Guest Parent:  TBA
                Time:  11:00am-12:30am

                Cost: $12.00 per parent or $16.00 for both parents.  Children under 12 free.

  Description:  There is much to read about and surf the web for, regarding alternative vaccination schedules and vaccination choices.  The mandates vary from state to state, as well.  There are times to vaccinate and times when you may want to wait.  There is your family's faith and your branch of religious beliefs and the ways you lead your lives to consider.  The ultimate decision is between you and your child's pediatric doctor.  This is a delicate life decision that requires your thought and dedication no matter how you choose.
Attending this discussion, one of many offered in a year long series with various eperts and various opinions, can continue your journey of parent-based research and inquiries regarding how and when to vaccinate your child or even asking if you want or feel the need to vaccinate your child.  

Join our 2012 discussion journey, at anytime during the year, as we take the time to offer sessions guided by health and wellness experts in WNY.  You may jump in at any time to ask questions or share your opinions.  The series repeats itself in the new year.
