Medical Society Supports March of Dimes Vaccination Efforts 

Statement attributable to:
Arthur Fougner, MD
President, Medical Society of the State of New York

“More than 60 years ago, the March of Dimes pioneered the vaccine research leading to the eradication of polio. The organization has been a leader in the fight for the health and well-being of mothers and children and has stood firm in their efforts to encourage every individual to be vaccinated.

“The Medical Society of the State of New York is pleased to support the March of Dimes’ efforts to ensure that medical exemptions are the only exemptions that exist in New York State. The health of our patients depends on proper vaccinations. Vaccines are, in fact, the very cornerstone of public health. We must preserve community immunity in order to protect society—especially our most vulnerable: newborn babies, pregnant women, the immune-compromised and those with cancer.
