He wanted to give all parents the opportunity to choose which vaccines to give their child, and when they should be given – a choice that is not available with the NHS schedule. This led to the formation of a dedicated children’s immunisation service, BabyJabs, in 2007.
Richard has written The Truth about Vaccines, which was first published in 2007. A much expanded and updated 4th edition was published in 2017 which is titled Vaccines: making the right choice for your child. He has talked and written widely on immunisation in the media.
He founded BabyJabs in response to parents’ concerns about vaccine safety and demands for a greater choice of vaccines for their children.
Dr Halvorsen offers consultations at BabyJabs to help you choose an immunisation schedule for your child.
