There is one thing all babies have in common, they're born with weaker immune systems than adults. We know there are some terrible diseases out here in the cold, cold world, and we also know that if you train the immune system to recognize those threats, they'll fight them off!
The problem is, vaccinations make parents uncomfortable, but in order to train the immune system in the best way possible, parents have to follow a strict schedule of injections. Often returning to the doctor for visits. All the time.
There are different vaccinations every month, with ranges and specific vaccines at specific times. It's so much scheduling. And different countries have different schedules because they're exposed to different diseases at different times. What if you have another kid in 2 years? Then you have to balance two of these schedules, plus your regular parenting and non-parenting lives.
But, what if I told you that researchers had figured out how to do this all in one shot. Literally. One. Uno. We sat down with one of the researchers behind this potentially life changing study.
