It seems that there has been a great deal of scaremongering going on regarding vaccinations and autism. While there may be some people/babies who have reactions to vaccinations there has been no link found between vaccinations and autism, and any reaction when taken as a whole are rare compared to the risks of not vaccinating children. While I certainly hope these words don’t come back to haunt me, I feel that as a community we are only protected from outbreaks/risks if large proportions of people are vaccinated – it may not prevent an infection, but like the flu vaccine for adults if they get the bug they’re likely to be better protected against it and not have a severe reaction to it. Yes there are risks, but they’re much smaller than ignoring the potential of the bugs that are being prevented by vaccinating, parents I implore you to feel the fear and do it.
