I am absolutely pro vaccine. I used to be anti vax untill I started doing proper research on this and reading books by authors like Dr. Paul Offit et al. (who is a Paediatrician with a specialisation in infectious diseases, not a GP, not a former Playboy model but someone with proper credentials (referring to the old "I wouldn't take my broken car to a doctor" logic))
I just feel about this that I can't believe that someone would willingly put my little girl in danger of contracting a disease for which she's still to little to be immunized against and compromise our herd immunity because of quack science. I know people who cannot be vaccinated due to having received transplants and I know that vaccinating my baby also helps them not to contract a horrible disease that our parents and grandparents might have suffered under.
Well, there's my 2 cents worth on this one.
PS: if you want to read up on this, start with "Autism's False Prophets: Bad Science, Risky Medicine, and the Search for a Cure"
