When this doctor is confused about advice he gave his friend, he asks Reddit:
I am 44f and I am a medical doctor. because of my profession, friends frequently call me for all sorts of medical advice, which is annoying but I do my best to advise them…I guess it comes with the profession.
however, being a doctor, I have a very strong pro-vaccine viewpoint. I realize it has gotten unnecessarily political but to me it is simple science and history showing how many deadly diseases were eradicated by vaccination.
one of my very good friends is antivax. not aggressively but she doesn’t vaccinate her kids. we try to avoid the subject when we talk because we are still friends and I long discovered that I can’t prove anything to her.
anyway, last night I was very tired after my shift, put my phone on silent and went to bed. this morning I wake up to 3 missed calls from her between 11pm and 12 am and a text “please call me”.
