  1. I thought it was interesting, too! I didn't specifically mention childhood vaccines - I was speaking generally as you asked about my concerns. And yes, of course there are aspects of immunology we don't understand - I was answering the other poster's question since she asked. I also never said I disputed stacks and stacks of research, and did say right off the bat that I do advocate for vaccines. I'm not trying to argue with anyone. So I'll sign off at this point. Everyone have a great evening!
  2. Hi LibraSunCNM, ASIA/Schoenfeld syndrome is one of my concerns. Hi Nursej22, As far as aspects of immunology that we still don't understand - there are many. For example, autoimmunity. Sure, we know what's happening, but why? Is it genetic, environmental? Both? Neither? There is some genetic component to a lot of autoimmune disorders, but not all. Roles and functions of cells, receptor function and identities are being discovered every day. Even lymph vessels were discovered fairly recently in the brain.
  3. I've always been an advocate of vaccines. That being said, I do have concerns. There is a lot about immunology that we still don't understand and what frustrates me about the debate is how polarized the two sides are. It's science - why are we arguing? There are legit concerns to investigate - that's good science. Anyone yelling that vaccines are safe for everyone is wrong, and anyone yelling that vaccines aren't safe for anyone is wrong too. Unfortunately this issue has become so politicized that a healthy debate now seems impossible.

    Congrats all! I got into Abilene but Dallas was my first choice. I'm happy but also sad, which is a strange feeling. I noticed that the mandatory orientation on December 16th is in Lubbock - is that for everyone? That's quite a trek for those of us in Dallas or San Antonio...so just curious.

    Jessica, I didn't feel like I interviewed well, either - definitely wasn't myself! I keep thinking I probably blew it Atxmitch, thanks for the info. Makes the waiting a little easier...
