I’m I’m Taryn, The Vaccine Mom.
I am a mom, and I’m I’m also a scientist. I worked as a biologist and chemist before attending graduate school, where I became a medical molecular biologist. My areas of expertise in molecular medicine are virology, vaccinology, biochemistry, and immunology.
Following my graduate studies, I managed a biomedical engineering laboratory where we focused on creating and testing new vaccine technology. My purpose beyond teaching students was to design and execute immunological experiments to test the engineers’ devices.
Not only am I capable of designing experiments, but I’m also able to decode complex peer-reviewed journal articles about other scientists’ experiments.
I have put my skills and knowledge as an expert to good use as The Vaccine Mom. Here you will find simple, well-researched answers to difficult questions.
I have to admit that as a non-mom scientist, I wasn’t entirely aware of the vast anti-vaccine movement. After becoming a mother and speaking to other parents, I now know that this issue is so much bigger than just the facts. It’s about protecting your child, no matter what your opinion is on vaccines.
I would love to help you understand why vaccinating your child is important and I think the best way to do that is through education.
Feel free to contact me with your respectful, vaccine-related questions.
If you’re not currently vaccinating your child and you’re open to considering it, this article (by yours truly) is a great starting place: The Decision to Vaccinate is an Emotional One…
