No passado domingo, 11 de outubro, o Diretor da divisão de doenças contagiosas do hospital Children’s Hospital Philadelphia e autor de “Autism’s False Prophets: Bad Science, Risky Medicine and the Search for a Cure”, Paul A. Offit, publicou uma coluna na seção de opinião do New York Times titulada “Nothing to Fear but the Flu Itself” (Nada a temer senão a própria gripe). O Dr. Offit escreve: “Funcionários de saúde pública agora estão a batalhar não só contra o implacável vírus da gripe, mas também contra os medos infundados da vacina que a pode prevenir”. Ele desacredita alguns dos mitos mais comuns sobre a vacina contra a gripe H1N1, como por exemplo, que ela não é segura, que não foi testada e que contém preservativos perigosos.

Encorajamos você a ler a coluna do Dr. Offit e lembrar que a vacinação ainda é a melhor maneira de prevenir a gripe sazonal e a gripe H1N1.
