  • Editors’ Note
    • Abstract: We are pleased to publish the final issue for volume six of Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics (NIB). The narrative symposium in this issue looks at vaccinations—specifically how parents make decisions for their children on vaccinations. The narrative symposium editors, Daniel Bustillos and Bradley Thornock, in concert with NIB’s editorial staff, wrote the call for stories and invited the commentators. The symposium offers personal stories from the viewpoint of parents about how they decide if vaccinations are a good and healthy fit for their children. Kenneth Haller, Bernice L. Hauseman, Jacob Heller, and Heidi Y. Lawerence wrote the four commentary articles on these narratives. They offer varied ... Read More

  • To Vaccinate or Not': Parents’ Stories
    • Abstract: After decades during which vaccination enjoyed widespread legitimacy and public adherence to medical and public health recommendations, public attitudes towards vaccination have become nearly as controversial as they once were in the heyday of the anti–vaccination movement of a hundred years ago. Despite scientific evidence and widespread consensus among healthcare professionals of immunization’s preventive public health benefits and the low risks that modern vaccines pose, once isolated pockets of public resistance to vaccination have spread and grown in number, undermining the authority of health professionals. The fact that lay conceptions of the safety and efficacy of vaccinations have gained enough ... Read More

  • Love, Fear, and a Leap into the Dark
    • Abstract: Many years ago, in the late 1980s, I was working at a federally–qualified health center in East St. Louis, Illinois. Soon after I started, an 8 year old boy in Belleville, Illinois, the next town over, was diagnosed with AIDS. He was a hemophiliac, and like many hemophiliacs in those days, he had contracted HIV through the blood products that had been used to provide clotting factors that were supposed to save his life. By the time he was diagnosed with AIDS, the mode of transmission of HIV—blood–borne or sexually transmitted—was well–known, not just to the scientific community, but to the general public as well. Nevertheless, there were calls from many parents in the Belleville school district to have the child ... Read More

  • Modernity and Vaccination: What Stories of Vaccine Injury Tell Us about
           Vaccines as Things
    • Abstract: Vaccination is a practice that takes place in communities and in the context of situated, interpersonal relationships. Vaccination is about belonging and belief, disease prevention and faith in science, the individual and the group. The experience of vaccination in the United States is framed by its legal status as a compulsory practice for many, but not all, vaccines, as well as by the laws that establish and constrain liability for vaccine manufacture and malpractice claims. Vaccination is therefore never just an issue of science or evidence, knowledge or ignorance, nature or society, but, in a profoundly Latourian sense, a hybrid that demonstrates its multiplicity by the epistemological and moral quandaries ...

  • Trust in Institutions, Science and Self—the Case of Vaccines
    • Abstract: Controversy has surrounded vaccines and vaccination since their introduction at the end of the 18th century. Early opposition centered on fear and distrust about introducing something foreign into the body, violation of the “laws of God,” and rejection of science. (Nelson & Rogers, 1992) Interestingly, as Wolfe and Sharp (2002) showed, there are “uncanny similarities” (p. 431) between contemporary arguments against vaccines and those used since the 19th Century. Both then and now, vaccine opponents have argued (among other things) that: vaccines cause injury/death; there is a conspiracy or cover–up those dangers; profit has subverted public health; and safer, more natural ...

  • Fear of the Irreparable: Narratives in Vaccination Rhetoric
    • Abstract: I began reading these narratives just a few weeks after the birth of my own baby boy. As someone who had studied vaccination and vaccine controversy for 7 years before having my own child, vaccinations felt like one of the few areas of looming new–parenthood that I was actually equipped to handle. After having read volumes of books and articles about vaccinations, interviewing vaccinating and non–vaccinating parents and physicians, and spending countless hours online reading message boards and watching videos about vaccines in the course of my research, I thought I had seen, read, and experienced every facet of the issue. I also felt firm in my decision to vaccinate my son against most diseases. I knew ... Read More

  • Review and Conduct of Human Subjects Research after a Natural or
           Man–Made Disaster: Findings from a Pilot Study
    • Abstract: The conduct of human subjects research in the wake of natural and man–made disasters is essential in order to further our understanding of the mental and behavioral health effects of such events on individuals and communities (Lurie, Manolio, Patterson, Collins, & Frieden, 2013). The results of post–disaster research can better prepare public health systems to consider and address individual and community mental and behavioral health needs. Given concerns about the effect of research on those affected by the disaster, it is important that information be gathered and considered regarding the ethical challenges encountered by both investigators and institutional review boards (IRBs). There is a growing ... Read More

  • The Clinical Bioethicist’s Role: Should We Aim to Relieve
           Suffering'
    • Abstract: According to Eric Cassell, suffering can be defined as “a specific state of severe distress induced by the loss of integrity, intactness, cohesiveness, or wholeness of the person, or by a threat that the person believes will result in the dissolution of his or her integrity” (Coulehan, 2012, p. 717). Jack Coulehan concludes that suffering “results from the stripping away of beliefs and symbols by which we construct a meaningful narrative of human life in general and our own lives in particular” (2012, p. 728). At first, it seemed to be a routine clinical consultation. A nurse at the hospital where I serve as Bioethics director asked me to evaluate decisions being made for her obtunded patient, Jane.1 The ... Read More

  • Vaccines: All the Risks, None of the Benefits
    • Abstract: Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics Call for Stories: To Vaccinate or Not' Parents’ Stories—“Regrets from a Recovering Pro-Vaxxer” is my “to vaccinate or not” story. You asked for true, personal stories from parents about making vaccination decisions for their children. I guess where my story begins is at that time, as a young mother in the 90’s, it really wasn’t a decision to make. I didn’t know there was anything I needed to further research to decide regarding vaccination. I did not have any reason to question vaccines. “Vaccination” was a non-issue in that I never read or heard from anyone anything about vaccination, pro, con, or otherwise. All I knew was what my Pediatrician told me, and even then, it was ... Read More

  • To Vaccinate or Not–Insights from a Mother Who Lost a Child to
           Influenza
    • Abstract: As a mother of two, I have always been pro–vaccination because there’s a reason vaccines were created. The fact that vaccines exist indicates these diseases are something we need to be protected from, but honestly I never thought vaccine–preventable diseases were the most likely cause for concern when it came to my kids. As a parent, I used to worry about the typical things—like having them hold my hand as they crossed the street, wearing their helmets when they rode their bikes, and don’t talk to strangers! That is until I lost my healthy, five–year–old son, Joseph, to H1N1 flu during the pandemic in October 2009. Joseph was a typical kindergartner who loved Star Wars, Spiderman, Transformers ...

  • Vaccines: First, Do No Harm
    • Abstract: I’ve had chronic eczema since I was 18–months–old, an autoimmune disease. As proud, responsible parents, Bob and I always supported our doctor’s advice. That included following the vaccine schedule in the 1960’s, DPT and Polio. I now realize, because of my autoimmune disease, our three girls should have been vaccinated with extreme caution. My first two children had reactions to their DPT shots, spending their young childhood sick and on antibiotics, eventually having their tonsils removed at 4–and 6–years–old. It wasn’t until my third child’s severe reaction to her DPT shot did I experience the true danger of vaccines. I was so confused! I couldn’t understand why her doctor said her reaction was ...

  • From Ignorant Consumer to Informed Advocate: Lifting the Curtain and
           Confronting Oz
    • Abstract: We entered the realm of parenthood late, as adoptive, rather than biological parents. When adopting, you walk a knife–edge, never knowing if the birth parents change their mind, or if the State might prohibit the adoption—you spend the months of the pregnancy, ultimately terrified, and work hard to distract yourself from any thought or plan beyond the day of birth. You have baby books on a shelf, but avoid the shelf, you borrow a crib, and procure only absolute essentials for baby; the idea of not coming home with baby, or worse, having to return baby to a birth parent who changes their mind during the foster period haunts your psyche. This is, undoubtedly the worst situation possible for informed decision–making ... Read More

  • Venturing Beyond the Headlines
    • Abstract: The account of how I came to vaccinate my children isn’t one of drama, illness, tears or outrage. It is a quiet journey from the perceived safety of blissful ignorance to the humbling arena of awareness. I was born into a highly educated, middle class family in the United States in 1972. Being so fortunate, I never knew scarcity, fear, or sickness. My friends all survived early childhood unscathed. I heard about polio from my parents, and how they were kept indoors in fear some summers as children in their communities were struck ill by that disease. My mother also told me a story of German Measles. She was a teacher while she was pregnant with me, and there was an outbreak in the ... Read More

  • Families are Under No Obligation to Put Their Children at Risk by
           Participating in the Corrupt Current US National Immunization Program
    • Abstract: My name is Ginger Taylor, and I hold an MS in Clinical Counseling from Johns Hopkins University. I am the mother of a 14–year–old vaccine injured child with an autism diagnosis, and our family no longer participates in the vastly corrupt and broken US National Immunization Program. Because of my experiences, I have become a state and national leader on vaccine safety and vaccine choice issues, co–founding The Canary Party, and The Maine Coalition for Vaccine Choice. I have two sons, born in 2000 and 2002, and vaccinated them roughly according the the recommended schedule. My second son suffered what we now recognize as an adverse vaccine reaction to his first dose of the Hep B vaccine, but it was ... Read More

  • First Do No Harm
    • Abstract: I am a parent who has made the decision not to vaccinate. This wasn’t always the case. Initially I was like most parents. I believed in the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. This belief was not based on any personal research I did. Rather, I allowed others to make this life–altering decision for me. My son Joshua was born in July 1984. His birth was unremarkable save he was three weeks overdue. He weighed 8 lbs. 14 oz. and scored 9 on the Apgar scale. He was a healthy and content baby. He suckled easily and was exclusively breastfed for the first six months. His mother and I remarked on how easy a baby Josh was. We felt very fortunate to have such a healthy baby. At four months ...

  • Not Optional But Required: Vaccinating for the Health and Safety of My
           Kids and the Public
    • Abstract: Fighting with my eight–year–old, Daniel, to get his annual flu shot, I wonder to myself if this is worth it. But the answer is always ‘yes.’ My two kids—Daniel and Kaitlin (11 years old)—are now beginning to understand why they have to get those dreaded but all too important shots each year. Kaitlin is old enough to remember getting the flu once and being miserable for over an entire week. She now talks about her immunizations with pride. “I’m vaccinated, so I won’t get cervical cancer,” she told her teacher after finishing her three doses of the HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccine last winter. Vaccines are important for our children’s health as well as the public’s health. For me they are not optional but ... Read More

  • We Failed To Protect our Child
    • Abstract: We are parents of three children ages 17, 15 and 11 (“Z”,” M”, and “E”). We fully vaccinated our first two children and have refused virtually all vaccines for our youngest. Our middle child (M) became ill after his 14 month “well baby visit.” He was feverish, lethargic, and crying constantly in a high–pitched voice. His pediatrician told us it was a genetic issue. In 2003, he was examined by the clinical director of a major East Coast teaching hospital. He told us that our son was suffering a severe vaccine reaction—he used the term “vaccinosis”—and stated that if we wanted him to get better we should seek out medical practices that specialize in treating autistic spectrum disorder. ...

  • Finding Faith in Skepticism and Symbolism in Science
    • Abstract: I fell in love with vaccines early. Years before committing myself to a career in medicine, decades before committing myself to becoming a parent, I was already fascinated. I could chalk it up to an early, powerful personal experience. When I was eight years old, my father and I often stayed up together, watching science programs on PBS. One night, he stepped outside with our dog during a commercial. By the time he stepped back inside, he was confused and hallucinating. A voracious reader, I promptly diagnosed him with consumption from the night air, L.M. Montgomery being my first medical text. Within twenty–four hours, he was in an ICU, diagnosed with septic shock from invasive pneumococcal ... Read More

  • How a Bout of Rotavirus Made Me Appreciate Vaccines
    • Abstract: When my first baby was about 11 months of age, she got rotavirus. There was not a vaccine on the schedule in 2003. She went to play at a city recreation center for toddlers and ended up being part of a large outbreak of this horrible virus, diagnosed by her doctor. She was incredibly sick for 10 days. She reverted to exclusive breastfeeding and refused everything else, including popsicles or Pedialyte. She would only breastfeed, which was comforting for her as well as life saving. She had a very bad case of rotavirus, with diarrhea and vomiting at least 10 times each a day for 10 days. It was pure hell for me as I barely slept for ten days. And I worried non–stop that she would die from dehydration and organ ... Read More

  • Comorbidities: Pertussis and Moral Certainty
    • Abstract: Nestled near a university student housing area was this small oasis of forested tranquility—a small private elementary school that I had decided to send my children to. It was an idyllic place, which assuaged all the concerns many modern parents have; the school was focused on outdoor play and physical activity, with a ‘no homework’ policy in the early grades, all of which appealed to my parental sensibilities at the time. Populated by students from diverse backgrounds, a grouping of parents could involve artists, blue–collars, hipsters, militant vegans, the unemployed, a university Dean or two, as well as physicians. The teachers were excellent, the environment seemed to be densely enriched, and ... Read More

  • Parents’ Rights to Flexibility in an Age When Doctors’
           “Hands are Tied”
    • Abstract: To vaccinate or not: what a loaded question. As a mother of four living children and one deceased I must admit that it’s been impossible to avoid this question repeatedly during the last seven years I have been a mom. And as a mom I have learned that generally, if not always, there is never one right answer to any question. I have also learned that what works for one of my children will most likely not work for the other, to my dismay. We are all individuals and as much as our bodies are the same we each have a unique recipe that makes us who we are. So the question of “to vaccinate or not” is indeed not a simple one, as is evidenced by this very narrative. Passionate mothers on every side feel very certain ... Read More

  • How Vaccines Changed Our Lives Forever
    • Abstract: Thirteen years ago our daughter had a severe adverse reaction to vaccination. Audra was ten months old in June 2003 when she received the second round of Hepatitis B (Hep B) and Diphtheria–Tetanus–Pertussis (DTaP) vaccines. Audra received her vaccines on a Wednesday and was totally paralyzed, with severe breathing difficulties, and on life support by Sunday. In the process of trying to figure out what had happened, my husband, I, and the medical team dissected the prior month of her life. It was then that one of the neurologists asked, “Has she received any vaccinations within the last 30 days'” We both answered, “Yes, this past Wednesday.” That’s when we first realized that vaccines could even ...

  • Autistic Child Undamaged by Vaccines— A Mother’s Story
    • Abstract: After three years of heartbreaking infertility, our miracle baby was born in January of 2012. I had never seen such a beautiful baby. We had wished for this child for years, and he was finally here. I had plenty of questions and choices as a new parent, but I never questioned immunization or even thought of it as a choice. It’s just something that you do. I waited too long and cried too many tears to bring this child into the world; I certainly didn’t want him susceptible to preventable diseases. I brought him faithfully to all the well visits, held his hand, and comforted him when he got all his shots. It seems that they were harder on me, as a mother, than they ever were on my son. He never ... Read More
