This is a tough one. The big drug companies say they are safe and why would they lie? On the other hand, the government is pushing them, and with a Democrat in the White House, that means they are bad. Dear Lord, what's a GOP/TP'er to think? Help me Rush!

I am amazed at how many people..very educated folks...are against vaccinations.

I agree with Phil..look at how many diseases almost eradicated with vaccinations. Look at how many are returning when many no longer are vaccinating their children.

These folks, to me, are crazy and risking their children's health for some conspiracy theories they read somewhere. Spot on Christopher...

There is a risk with any medication or vaccine but the benefit out ways the risk.

This is only an issue due to ONE idiotic Dr. who wrote a book and began a self-aggrandizing crusade against Vaccines, blaming them for Autism and a host of other illnesses. Though his work was almost instantly discredited by almost everyone else in the field, talk show talking heads like the brilliant Jenny McCarthy have perpetuated this nonsense. Vaccines have saved millions of lives and spared millions more the anguish of permanent disabilities.

I see this in my area, and perhaps it's true everywhere: school districts require immunization records before a child can enter kindergarten. Why's that? Because too many non-US-born children are not vaccinated/immunized, and either have “something” or travel back home and bring things back.

Does anyone remember when polio was a major concern? At the turn of the 20th. century the life expectency was about 47 years. That has been increased to about 75 in today's world. We must be doing something right.

I am amazed by modern commentaries. We have more people than ever. The population of the US doubled since WW2 and we are worrying about vaccines and a host of other chemicals? How did we get to be so many if death is everywhere? who can forget the polio scares, real scares. visit a pioneer cemetery and see how short many lives were. they would have given anything i bet to have what we have.
