Jax Taylor Suggests Vaccines Caused Son Cruz To Regress

All of a sudden, Jax Taylor seems to think he’s a public health expert. The Valley star just took to Instagram to make a bizarre claim that vaccines had a negative effect on his son, Cruz. Of course, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but this is an interesting one.

On The Valley, Jax and his estranged wife, Brittany Cartwright, have opened up about their little one’s developmental challenges. They said he was on track with all of his milestones but then suddenly started to regress one day. Jax said he’s been doing a lot of research to figure out what caused this, and it seems like he stumbled upon some questionable findings.

Jax’s questionable comments about vaccines came via Instagram. He posted a comment where he insinuated that Cruz’s developmental problems started right around the same time he received his vaccines.

“My son crawled early, walked early, and even spoke early,” Jax explained. “Then we got him vaccinated and it all stopped.”

Jax didn’t elaborate on specifically what vaccines he’s skeptical about. Two-year-olds typically have a handful of vaccines that protect them against terrible illnesses like polio, measles, and mumps. Regardless, Jax couldn’t help but question the science.

The Vanderpump Rules alum continued, “I am not saying vaccines are the cause but what else could it be, how can [Cruz] be talking fully, walking fully then stop two weeks after vaccinations.”

As Jax continues to theorize about vaccines, Cruz is in speech therapy to help address the developmental concerns. On The Valley, Brittany said that she wants to make sure he has all the “right tools” for success. The cameras followed them as Cruz had a session with his speech therapist, Miss Dory. He’s clearly in good hands, all while being protected against serious illness.
