Help Protect Texas’ Babies Through Vaccination

Vaccinations.
A hot and somewhat sensitive subject right now with Ebola, Measles and other diseases circulating around the world. Do you believe in vaccinating? I do. Infectious diseases are scary! They are not only dangerous if contracted, they are contagious and even sometimes deadly too. Most of us contract diseases like Chicken Pox when we are kids, but if you contract that same disease as a baby or even as a senior citizen, you are at more risk due to poorer immune systems. Babies have not developed enough yet, and sadly as we get older, it gets harder to keep a build-up of immunity to fight of even simple colds and flu.

Did you know that many infants and children in the state of Texas have not received all of the CDC-recommended vaccines? The CDC, Center for Disease Control and Protection, recommends which vaccines to get to help protect our children from all of the diseases I have listed, as well as many others. Even children who are under-insured, have no insurance, or are Medicaid eligible can qualify to receive the vaccines for little or no cost at all. Plus, there is also providers who extend their office hours to fit busy schedules at work and home. The CDC can help connect you to these providers.



As a Canadian, you're probably wondering why I care or even promote vaccinations in Texas. For starters, contagious diseases travel. Even to other countries, so no one is safe. Secondly, my sister-in-law, her husband and two children live in Houston, Texas. Knowing my family is safe and protected while living far from home matters most. 

So I urge you, whether you live in Texas or anywhere in the world, please get your vaccines. If you have had vaccines, just make sure that they are up to date. It not only protects you and the ones you love, it also protects the rest of us on earth too.


Visit the CDC for more information.

  1. I know it's controversial, but at this time I do believe in vaccinations against those childhood diseases that plagued former generations.

  3. Vaccines are so tricky to discuss. Everybody has an opinion. My grandfather told stories about polio, measles, mumps, and all of the bad stuff we have under check now. They were so scary.

    The truth of the matter is that vaccines save lives. I'm somewhat immuno-compromised and it really grinds my gears when you hear parents say that they would take their child out of school/playgroup/whatever if they were sick. If they are showing symptoms, they have already exposed others.

  4. Helpful info. I think a view from out of the country is interesting too.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation. Check out the site for more information on nutrients that help to safeguard th…
