Now seeing patterns of how much our choices have consequences, both positively and negatively. What we have control of, and what we do not. And, realizing that as a parent, even when I think I do not get to choose, as it appears with the CA mandated vaccination schedule, I now know that I actually can choose what's best for my daughter. There are options! And, it all starts with thoughtful education and critical thinking.

who has been studying immunology and vaccinology for many years, helping families to make well-educated decisions about vaccinating. She is not pro- or anti-vaccine, her goal is to help educate the public about the benefits and risks. Each person and child is unique in the way they will tolerate vaccines and Dr. Mazi helps to look at each unique individual's whole health picture to help parents determine the best course of action- to vaccinate, not to vaccinate, to create a unique vaccine schedule appropriate for each individual situation.
