Dr. Bob Zajac is a board-certified pediatrician with additional expertise in asthma/allergy care, developmental/behavioral pediatric care, and natural/holistic care. He received his degree in Child Development, and pursued an additional four years of training in a PhD program (Early Childhood Special Education), followed by his medical degree (MD – University of Minnesota – 2000) and residency training (pediatrics – 2000-2003).
Dr. Zajac and his wife Julie have been married for over 25 years and have 8 children.
In terms of education and experience, no one can criticize Dr. Zajac as being "uniformed" when it comes to children's health.
Dr. Zajac admits that he used to be a "vaccine bully," because his clinic needed to achieve certain vaccine rates.
Then in 2007 or 2008 an important medical discovery was made in his practice:
"I experienced my first regression to autism in one of my patients.
Now, you've all heard the same story, that they were born with autism and the doctor just didn't know that they had autism.... No, that's not true.
My background is in child development. I was working with kids with special needs. I had a perfectly normal child in my practice until they received the 12 month vaccines.
When I walked into the room at the 17 month visit, I literally saw a child I had never met before. I thought I had walked into the wrong room. I stepped out to make sure I was in the right room. I did not recognize this child. He had regressed into autism, one the saddest cases I have ever seen.
That's when I started reading about vaccines."
Then another medical event really opened up his eyes regarding vaccines:
"A few years later we had a patient die after his shots - they called it a SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) death, at 2 in the afternoon, a few hours after his vaccines."
