Dr. Paul has a new book!
"The Vaccine-Friendly Plan: Dr. Paul's Safe and Effective Approach to Immunity and Health- from Pregnancy Through Your Child's Teen Years" gives Dr. Paul's take on the controversy of childhood immunizations and the best way to approach getting those vaccines to help ensure your child stays healthy. Watch for more more info here soon!

And now, for a limited time, you can get a FREE 10-page copy of "The Dr. Paul Approved Vaccine Plan", Dr. Paul's vaccine schedule that is shaking up the country, by visiting the new Dr. Paul Approved website!

On March 1st, 2014, Oregon instituted a change in current vaccine laws. The goal was to eliminate the religeous exemption clause, and replace it with a philosophical exemption. In order to do this, a vido was created that will educate parents on the dangers of not getting vaccinated. For a parent to claim a philosophical exemption in Oregon, they will be required to watch the state video and then print out a form that is available at the end of the presentation. They can then give this form to their child's school or daycare provider.

You can access the Oregon state videos and resources at the following links:

The current AAP/CDC immunization schedule is the recommended schedule. This is typically updated each year. As we discuss your child’s specific immunization needs you can ask the question “Well Dr. Paul, what would you do if this were your child?” And you can be sure to get an honest answer that places an emphasis on safety by getting those vaccines covering the most dangerous diseases that are prevalent, while minimizing the risk from toxins contained within the vaccines or other concerns you may have.
