El domingo pasado (11 de octubre), el jefe de la división de enfermedades infecciosas del hospital Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia y autor de “Autism’s False Prophets: Bad Science, Risky Medicine and the Search for a Cure”, Paul A. Offit, publicó una columna en la sección de opinión del New York Times titulada “Nothing to Fear But the Flu Itself” (Nada que temer excepto a la propia gripe). El Dr. Offit afirma que “Los funcionarios de salud pública ahora luchan no sólo contra el implacable virus de la influenza, sino también contra los temores infundados sobre la vacuna que la puede prevenir”. El doctor procede a desacreditar algunos de los mitos más conocidos sobre la vacuna contra la influenza H1N1, como por ejemplo que la vacuna no es segura, que no ha sido evaluada y que contiene conservantes peligrosos.

Alentamos a todos a tomarse un momento para leer el artículo del Dr. Offit y recordar que la mejor manera de evitar la gripe estacional y la gripe H1N1 es mediante la vacunación.
