Sydney Spiesel, M.D., Ph.D., recently published a column on Slate titled, “I’m a Pediatrician. Should I Treat All Children or Just the Vaccinated Ones?” Dr. Spiesel joins "Sound Medicine" to discuss the vaccine controversy, why he is pro-vaccine, and the role pediatricians play in treating unvaccinated children. Eric Meslin, Ph.D., discusses the ethical decisions a pediatrician must make when refusing to treat an unvaccinated child.
