I just came across this article which gives a good summary of what doctors learn about vaccines in medical school. Most people assume they learn about vaccine effectiveness and risk. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The article talks a bit about that, and gives some basic information on types of vaccines and additives.
When we participate in pediatrics training, we learn that vaccines need to be given on schedule. We learn that smallpox and polio were eliminated by vaccines. We learn that there’s no need to know how to treat diphtheria, because we won’t see it again anyway. We are indoctrinated with the mantra that ‘vaccines are safe and effective’ —neither of which is true.4
