The Questioning Parent

Although a large and growing body of scientific evidence has shown no connection between vaccines and autism or other long term disorders, approximately one-third of parents continue to express concerns about the safety of vaccines. Nearly 1 in 10 parents refuse or delay vaccinations due to fears that their children are at greater risk of the side effects of vaccines than they are of the diseases themselves.

Most parents in today’s society have never been subjected to the horrors of witnessing the devastating effects that vaccine preventable diseases can cause.
