You can’t turn on the TV, pick up a newspaper, or surf the internet without coming across the debate about childhood vaccines.
Most of these articles, posts, and testimonials make the vaccine question seem like it’s completely black or white: either you’re reading that vaccines are a miracle and of absolute necessity and you should do all the vaccines the CDC and your pediatrician recommend without question (and that you are “selfish,” and “dangerous” if you do not), or you are discovering websites and columnists who insist that vaccines are all dangerous, vaccines will kill your infant, and all vaccines are bad. These anti-vaccine sites insist that if you want your baby to be healthy, you shouldn’t do any vaccines at all.
If you have autism in the family – don’t do any vaccines.
